PNGBUZZ footy tips for the weekend

Gurias host the Mioks. Mioks unlucky away in Goroka last week. Gurias on paper and on form to strong for the Eagles last week and will see off the Mioks this weekend.

Lae Snax Tigers continued their form, against a deflating Isou last weekend but should get a stronger challenge from the Lahanis. Lahanis diabolic at best but have the ingredients to cause an upset though not this weekend.

The Eagles will need to soar a bit higher in Mt Hagen than what they’ve been displaying if they want to compete against the Vipers who have found their fang. Vipers to win.

Dabari host the Wigmen. Both teams haven’t had the form they desire and will be looking to desperately find the winning way to clear the amounting losses. Dabari look the better of both. Dabari to win.

Isou host the Muruks in the double of the Digicel Cup which ends the treble of Sunday Rugby League in Port Moresby at the NFS. Isou look to have the upper hand in structure and have been close to a winning result and should get the win if the Muruks boys aren’t blinded again by the City lights.

Isou to win. The second of the games in the Central Highlands of PNG will see inform Waghi Tumbe take on the Cutters. Cutters warming to a 10- 4 results will hope to build on this and look for consistency. Tumbe to be too strong. 

Intrust Super Cup

Hunters will be all prepped up for the welcome of in-form Edene Gebbie. The focus for the Hunters in the build on from the last game will be patience and completion of all aspects of their game.

Wynnum have had a mixed season however haven’t had the best record up in PNG. Hunters should rekindle their winning ways towards a mid season push for the top eight. Hunters to win off the back of a dominant forward performance led by Maki and supported by Kapinias and co. 

Safe weekend to all Stay Safe and Play fair.
