2013 Digicel Cup runner up and minor premier team, Bintangor Goroka Lahanis, will fight tooth and nail this season to bring home the cup.
The team came in glory in 2011 when they beat a proven Agmark Rabaul Gurias outfit.
This season looks to be no different, as they prepare to lock horns with reigning champions, Port Moresby Stop N Shop Vipers.
Both teams made it into the final playoffs last year, but Vipers’ venom sank to the bone giving them a clear run home with the cup.
The ever-determined Lahanis are optimistic of exacting revenge come April 13.
Bernard Tatsim Jr will continue to wear his favourite jumper, despite not making it into the SP PNG Hunters team.
Leo Fred will lock horns with elder brother and 2013 Lae Snax Tiger’s skipper, Sydney Fred.
The 34- man squad includes players from the local Gahuku Rugby League.
