Wolfpack to face 6-Mile Crows in grand final


Regan Naipao outclassed the Raiders pack as Clency Kei and Malai Kua bagged a try each and John converted one of the four-pointers.
After the break, Yeki Ben crossed over for Wolfpack’s third try and John added the extras before Emmanuel Herea kicked a field goal to seal the win.
Raiders’ game plan on the edges was ineffective for the entire match as they failed to find the line until Simon Mckinion crossed over for their only try and Junior Hoki added the extras.
Their backline combination of Bobby Vavona, Ravu Junior, Mckinon, Junior Wale and fullback Hoki was ordinary despite the efforts of forwards Goratove Ori, Andy Luke, Apele Iso and Leroy Gideon. Wolfpack owner Brixxie Tala said good team spirit and discipline had enabled them to reach the grand final.
“We were underdogs in the eliminations playoffs,” he said.
“So we had to work hard to beat minor premiers Bulldogs and Raiders.
Meanwhile, in the Under-20s, minor premiers Gabutu Dragons recorded 4-0 victory against Korobosea Souths to reach the grand final against Kaugere Bulldogs, who edged Raiders 8-6.
Major sponsor and Moresby South MP Justin Tkatchenko is expected to present the JT Cup and K20,000 to the A-grade winners while the runners-up will pocket K10,000.
