Tigers still lead; Mioks appeal to be heard

first_imgRugby League BY SIMON KESLEP Lae Snax Tigers still maintain a clear lead on the competition ladder as round 13 kicks off on Sunday. Current points ladder, Tigers 21, JPG Waghi Tumbe 19, Agmark Rabaul Gurias 18, Bintangor Goroka Lahanis 15, PRK Gulf Isou 11, Central Dabaris 11, Wamp Nga Mt Hagen Eagles 11, EPG Enga Mioks 10, Kroton Hela Wigmen 9, PRK Mendi Muruks 8, NCDC Port Moresby Vipers 7, Kimbe Cutters 4. Tigers have been consistent since the start of the season. They face Kimbe Cutters in Lae on Sunday. A triple header fixture is likely in the nation’s capital with Kroton Hela Wigmen taking on Agmark Rabaul Gurias in what should be one of the entertaining matches of the day. The other games will see NCDC Port Moresby Vipers take on second-placed JPG Waghi Tumbe while EPG Enga Mioks meet PRK Mendi Muruks. Reigning champions Bintangor Goroka Lahanis proved a handful for the Wamp Nga Mt Hagen Eagles in Goroka last Sunday with a 38-12 win. This Sunday will be no different as they host the visiting PRK Gulf Isou. Eagles will look to make amends when they take on Central Dabaris in Mt Hagen. PNG National Rugby League Competition administrator Stanley Hondina confirmed with the Post-Courier yesterday the appeals committee will meet today to deliberate on the matter about the suspension of home games for the Enga Mioks. The suspension of home games for Mioks relates to round 10 match between them (Mioks) and Lae Snax Tigers whereby a touch judge was assaulted and injured. As a result PNG NRLC board made an announcement last week Wednesday to suspend the remaining five games in Wabag for the 2019 season. The good news, however, is Hondina said all 12 franchise teams have been performing well and he is happy that they have lifted their standards in compliance with their (PNG NRLC) requirements. PNG NRLC continues to set a bench mark by advising teams including spectators, team managements to adhere to strict rules and guidelines. “There have been a few and they have all complied well,” said Hondina when queried on how many disciplinary cases have been brought to their attention.last_img read more

Australian McGrath backs day-night tests to revive popularity

first_imgMUMBAI, (Reuters) – Five-day cricket remains the ultimate format for Australia fast bowling great Glenn McGrath, who believes day-night tests are the way forward for the format to survive in the age of the shorter Twenty20 version. The future of the longest format has been the subject of debate since the rise of popular T20 leagues over the last decade coincided with dwindling crowds at test matches outside cricket hotbeds Australia and England.Officials view day-night tests as having the potential to reverse the trend.“I am a big fan of test cricket, to me test cricket is still the ultimate and we’ve got to keep the game fresh, people enjoying it,” McGrath told reporters after a Tourism Australia event to attract more Indian visitors. “T20 has taken the world by storm, it is bringing a lot more people to cricket and that is brilliant and hopefully that will filter into test cricket.”The International Cricket Council (ICC), the sport’s world governing body, is also set to discuss the idea of reducing test matches by a day to free up a crowded international calendar.But McGrath, who took 563 wickets from 124 matches, is not in favour of having four-day tests. “We have got to keep test cricket alive and moving forward and positive and people coming to the game. And, to me, the way to do that is day-night test cricket. I’m big fan of it. I’m not a big fan of four-day test cricket,” he said.“I’m very much a traditionalist – five days that’s test cricket to me. But if we can bring something new that keeps people coming to the game, then that’s brilliant. Day-night cricket is that, it brings different challenges.”India have traditionally been reluctant to embrace innovation in cricket but after much heel-dragging they finally experienced a day-night test when they faced neighbours Bangladesh in Kolkata last year. The game’s most influential nation have also agreed to play a day-night test in Australia during their tour later this year, having declined Cricket Australia’s offer of a pink ball test during their most recent tour Down Under in 2018/19.Virat Kohli’s men won the test series 2-1 on their last visit but McGrath said Australia will be a different opposition with the return of batting aces Steve Smith and David Warner, who were serving bans due to ball tampering last time.“Australia are playing a pretty good brand of cricket. They’ve got Steve Smith back and David Warner back and both playing well,” said the 50-year-old McGrath. “Having back a batsman like Dave Warner and a quality batsman like Steve Smith, it’s a totally different game.“It’s going to be tougher for India. That’s not to say they can’t perform well. I think it’s going to be a really good series this year.”last_img read more
