HEKARI Tarangau will continue their winning run when they lock horns with West in the A grade division of the Port Moresby rugby league competition as it enters round 10 at the Lloyd Robson oval on Sunday.
The match will start at 3pm.
It is expected to be a one-sided affair with in-form captain Charles Onguglo leading the warders, before he shifts camp to the Masta Mak City Rangers to prepare for the bemobile Cup challenge, starting early next weekend.
Onguglo, who has been part of the side since the start of the season, has seen Tarangau with a clean record so far.
However, with his departure, the young guns have to learn the ropes of winning matches without their key players.
West should not be written off as yet as they are capable of causing an upset and this could the right time for them to step up a gear against the top team in the competition.
This weekend’s matches should also be vital for most of the teams to gain valuable points as some of them will be losing their key members to franchise clubs preparing for the bemobile Cup challenge.
This has been the trend since the inception of the semi-professional rugby league competition.
In the other match, Bishop Brothers Hawks, who bounced back to the winners’ circle with a win over the SBS Butterflies ,should continue their good form against KAL Magani.
Hawks veteran Toua Kohu will be out of action as he joins up with the Stop N Shop Port Moresby Vipers to clash with Suburban Ducks in a trial match on Sunday.
However, Edea Morea and Vagi Agalu will have to lift their performance if they are serious about collecting the two competition points.
After going down to Hawks in their last outing, Butterflies will looking forward to make amends when they meet Kone Storms in what is expected to be a grudge match.
Storms, who are making their debut in the A grade division, started their campaign on a high note.
With their current form, they should shock the Butterflies if they continue creating errors that their opponents will capitalise on to come up with tries.
In the other matches, Souths, who started their campaign on the back-foot, will face off with Maiari Eagles and Paga Panthers meet Kone Tigers.
