Brotherly affair in Rigo rugby league final

first_imgRugby League It will be a brotherly affair between Saroa Keina Bulldogs and Prima Broncos in Rigo rugby league grand finals tomorrow at Kwikila station oval, Central province. Both clubs have secured the A grade and U20 division finals and fans of both these teams and residents in the nation’s capital including those of Central origin are invited to come along and support in the true spirit of rugby league. Interim administrator Manu Lofena said throughout the mid-season a total of 10 teams participated and since being entrusted by PNG RFL’s Southern Confederate to run the competition their aim is to give opportunity to the rural talent in Rigo to be actively involved in competition despite past administrative issues. “We have been entrusted by the PNGRFL Southern Confederate to run Rigo rugby league because there is going to be a lot of programs running next year,” said Lofena. “Middle of the year the competition was running but was stalled because of the corporate support and then the director (southern confederate) directed interim executives to come in and pull in corporate support.” Gone are the days of violence given the two team’s commitment towards ensuring their players and supporters abide by the true spirit of rugby league. Lofena assured Rigo rugby league followers that an annual general meeting will be held after two weeks to elect the new office bearers so they can align themselves and attend the next PNGRFL AGM. “We thank Sergey and Vikki Mosin for their humanitarian support to Rigo rugby league to make it work and for us to complete our grand finals through their products Mosin Water and others,” said Lofena. “When we (interim administrators) came on board, Vitis Industries through their Mosin products gave an initial sponsorship of K10,000 to support the competition right up to the grand final.” There will only be grand final awards made after the grand final while yearly awards will not be made due to time frame. Match officials will be from the Port Moresby rugby league. “Rugby league has tough rules, we are not running a bush league and I do not want Rigo rugby league to run a bush league,” says Lofena when advising supporters to be mindful of no violence to rugby league. At 9.20am U20 finals will be officially kicked off by Southern Confederate Gwaibo Mairi. The men’s A grade final kicks off at 10.40 am.last_img read more

I was disappointed the Bills dropped those blue pants shortly after 1984, they would have looked good on those Bills teams of the 90s, at least as an option. Had the Bills retained those blue pants, you wonder if they would have considered a blue monochrome at some point. 162 0 71 ExposGotRobbed94 Members Link to post Favourite Logos:Buffalo Bills ’62-73 ..

Dhoni is lucky captain, Ganguly: Gambhir | Dhoni on Gambhir

first_imgMumbai എം MS is the ‘lucky captain’ who got the best team in the world during his tenure as captain. Former India player and BJP MP Gautam Gambhir has been named as Dhoni. Gambhir said that Dhoni’s success as skipper included Zaheer Khan, who was brought up by Sourav Ganguly as the current captain of the BCCI. Speaking on Star Sports’ Cricket Connected chat show, Gambhir referred to Dhoni as the ‘lucky captain’ who had the opportunity to reap the rewards of Ganguly’s hard work.‘Zaheer Khan has the full credit for making Dhoni the best captain in Test cricket. Zaheer Khan is Dhoni’s greatest blessing. The credit for his upbringing is entirely attributed to former captain Sourav Ganguly. In my opinion, Zaheer Khan is the most world-class pacemaker India has seen. “Dhoni is the lucky captain who has got the best team in all formats,” Gambhir said. Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the first Indian captain to make India in the world rankings in Test cricket.Zaheer Khan is the only bowler to take 311 wickets in his international Test career spanning a decade and a half. Zaheer took 116 wickets under Dhoni’s captaincy. Zaheer, meanwhile, took 102 wickets under the captaincy of Sourav Ganguly. Zaheer’s bowling average is at 30.62 under Dhoni. Zaheer, on the other hand, had an average of 35.98 under Ganguly. Zaheer Khan, who made his international debut under Sourav Ganguly, has grown into a world-class bowler under him.Gambhir said it was not difficult for Dhoni to lead India in the 2011 ODI World Cup as there were so many superstars. Dhoni’s squad included Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Munaf Patel, Yuvraj Singh, Yusuf Pathan and Virat Kohli. Gambhir said Ganguly was the captain who built the best team out of the ashes, adding that Dhoni was the captain who got the best team out of everything.‘It was the easiest thing for Dhoni to lead the Indian team in the 2011 ODI World Cup. Because of that, there were players including Sachin Tendulkar, Sehwag, I, Yuvraj, Yusuf and Virat. Dhoni has been awarded the best team. Ganguly worked hard to build the team. As a result, Dhoni has won so many trophies, ”said Gambhir.English Summary: MS Dhoni very lucky, he became successful Test captain because of Zaheer Khan: Gautam Gambhirlast_img read more

Arsenal sells striker in Spain – Football World – England

first_imgArsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette is about to be transferred to Atletico Madrid. The Londoners will let the Frenchman leave as soon as Pierre-Emerick Obameyang signs a new contract, which is expected to happen in the coming days.Atletico will pay £ 30 million for Lacazette, who often found himself on the bench after the arrival of Mikel Arteta at the Emirates. Willian’s impending arrival would further limit the striker’s ability to play.The main goal of the “gunners” at the moment is to ensure Obamaiang stays at the club. After winning the FA Cup, it seems that the chances of this happening have increased.Londoners have to part ways with some players to fund new recruits. The club is ready to sell a lot of its players. Socrates, Genduzi, Torreira, Mkhitaryan, Kolasinak, Mustafi and Holding are on the transfer list and will be released with a suitable offer.Arsenal have hopes to part with Mesut Ozil’s huge salary, but their chances are not great. The German has a contract for another year, and his agent recently said that Ozil has no intention of leaving the club. Follow us anywhere and anytime with the mobile application of Gong.bg.

Former Ajax player: Leaving Messi will be the best for Kuman…

first_imgFormer Egypt and Ajax striker Ahmed Hossam Mido has commented on the possible departure of Lionel Messi from Barcelona. He believes that the absence of the star will allow the new coach Ronald Koeman to establish his authority in the team.“This is the best thing that can happen to Kuman. I’m sure he won’t be able to build his empire on the team with Messi in the locker room.Ronald is one of the best coaches I’ve worked with, he has a strong character, but he will face many difficulties if Messi stays …Kuman has been my coach for two and a half years and no matter how much time passes, he still can’t handle players with strong characters. That’s why he doesn’t want players with his own opinion, “Mido told Goal.com.While questioning Kuman’s ability to work with big names, Mido admits that the Dutchman can boast of Barcelona’s “DNA”, which is a huge advantage.

Arkansas coach Chad Morris tries to explain his team’s horrible fake punt vs. Auburn

first_imgAt one point in Arkansas’ 51-10 loss to Auburn on Saturday, the Razorbacks ran what might be the worst play we’ve seen in recent memory.Arkansas, down 17-0 to the 11th-ranked Tigers in the second quarter, lined up to punt the ball away at its 41-yard line. It was at that moment the team ran an ill-conceived, ill-fated fake punt. “We needed something to give us a spark and we were going to have to try and steal a possession somewhere. Luckily they missed the field goal so that didn’t hurt us at that point. We were looking for anything to try and get a spark on that one.“Yeah, it’s just designed to — they had a full-on rush. Let the rush come and kinda touch pass over the top like a basketball shot, right over the top with (Auburn’s player) running under it.”Expect that play to never make another appearance again for Arkansas. This fake punt from Arkansas might be one of the worst plays we’ve ever seen in college football.pic.twitter.com/VpKPOKJlQE— Sporting News (@sportingnews) October 19, 2019MORE: Sooner Schooner flips in scary crash during Oklahoma-West Virginia gameSo, to recap: Arkansas punter Sam Loy received the snap, then chest-passed the ball up in the air like he was in a Dr. Pepper halftime throw competition. The pass was well off the mark, and was intercepted by the Auburn defense. But what makes this play truly disastrous is that, even if the pass was completed, the receiver still had 11 yards to go for the first down.So what was the intent behind this play? Arkansas coach Chad Morris was asked about it after the game, and actually provided a lengthy explanation. Although he clearly recognizes the play didn’t go as planned.“Yeah, not the result we were looking for,” Morris said after the game. “It was something that they had shown, we have actually been working on that for a couple of weeks. I thought at the time that we needed something to get us kickstarted, just wasn’t moving the chains.last_img read more
