Port Moresby Rugby League went into its semifinals over the weekend, with Gigira Laitepo Souths and the Hekari Tarangaus. 

The Murray Barracks oval was packed with regulars and first timers who were on their best behavior to catch a glimpse of Port Moresby footy action.   

The Gigira Laitepo Souths were up for an intense battle, and didn’t go down easily on the boys from Bomana. 

Tarangaus, with exceptional performance so far in the season, were in form when they took the lead through Paul Jackson as the match unfolded. 

Tarangau, led by Jackson, extended their lead  and kept the boys in red, green, gold and black,  under pressure.

The coveted PRL ball boy who was drafted into the Digicel Cup’s reigning team, Hela Wigmen, William Mone, was up for the Souths, taking them onto the scoring board with an opener. 

The well-kept Murray Barracks oval was buzzing with the dazzling Tarangaus outfit proving to be no easy beats right  till half time. 

The 10-4 half time deficit woke up Souths to recoup and fight back.

William Mone showed his potency to cross the try line the second time around, while Clement Umbai added a third.    

Ricky Sibiya made a comeback for the Tarangaus with Solomon Pokari taking on a penalty to a commanding 14 point lead.
