We’re just a day away from the Capital Rugby Union grand final and both teams, University and Defence, are excited to face off at Sir John Guise Stadium.

For the U19 division, Valley Hunters will take on Harlequins, and in the A Reserve division University meet Harlequins.

But it’s the main game between University and Defence that carries the most anticipation.

After an intense game last weekend during the semis, with yet another Defence team, University won by a tight match 26-25.

Defence is also prepared and looking forward to the Grand Final. Qualifying for the grand final was not easy, as they defeated Brothers last week 12-6 in a tough encounter. 

Sir John Guise Stadium is expected to come alive as supporters flock to the stadium for a huge day full of matches.

Her previous experience extends to a year of general news reporting for NBC West New Britain, NBC Madang and stringing for PNGFM just before joining EMTV. Having done courts, business, health, Education rounds before, the prospect of doing Sports stories became a new challenge. One that Dinnierose wanted to test herself with.
