The National, Friday July 26th, 2013

 THE red hot Taurama Suns are aiming to maintain their winning form in the Port Moresby BSP AFL premiership challenge tomorrow at the Taurama Barracks Oval.

The third-placed Suns take on fourth-placed Gordon Kokofas in a match that should be close.

The morale in the Suns camp is high after knocking off the once unbeaten Dockers two weeks ago.

The Suns continued their winning form brushing aside their Murray Barracks cousins Defence Hawks in an inaugural Kokoda Cup challenge in a Remembrance Day clash at the latter’s homeground on Tuesday.

The Kokofas will need an extra sense of commitment to gain possessions if they want to get over the Suns. Much of Kokofas attack will depend on captain courageous Lailai Ilato distributing well to set up yhis forwards.

The Suns led by Jeffery Namete will surely be unstoppable and if the Kokofas fail to contain them, the Taurama boys should continue their celebrations.

Fixtures: Suns v Kokofas, Tigers v Koboni, Cats vs Bombers, Magpies vs Hawks.
