The National, Friday 27th January 2012

KELEONE Panthers have a daunting task in rounds 7 and 8 of the NGIP Agmark 9s rugby league challenge this weekend.
They have to fight to maintain their spot in the top three.
Panthers are determined to continue their winning form but Dogs should not be written off because they are capable of causing an upset.
Dogs have continued to pick up form in every game as the competition progresses.
Panthers sponsor Agi Ora is confident his players can put up the sterling show to keep their wining streak.
He will be depending on AFL U19 star Emaus Wartovo, Junior Moni, Brian Tibe, Mathew Gerson and current Gurias duo Fabian Pulu and Kazu Ben to lead the troops.
In the other games, Nguvalian Sharks should come up with something special to upset Paveks Reds from Rabaul.
Reds have a number of seasoned players. They have been unlucky over the last few weeks not recording a win.
However, they have vowed to put on an improved performance this weekend.
