The Lae SNAX Tigers have received widespread support from rugby fans in Lae following their improved performance in the Digicel Cup this year.
After bagging the wooden spoon at the end of their maiden season, the Lae franchise has moved from strength to strength into becoming one of the toughest teams in the competition.
The 2014 Digicel cup season started off well for the new look Tigers side, with nine wins, a draw and a loss under their belt.
Since taking on the responsibility in 2013, coach Stanley Tepend has given the team a magic touch.
This year, five Tigers players joined the PNG Hunters and two of their youngsters were part of the U19 Kumuls that recently won the Commonwealth nines title in Scotland.
The Lae Tigers first entered the Digicel cup competition in 2011, with their first recruitment of mostly young talents and experienced players from the disbanded Lae Bombers.
It is a team built on solidarity among players and commitment towards maintaining strong discipline and high levels of fitness.
For the players, it has been discipline and teamwork on improving their basic conduct both on and off the field.
Being on top of the competition's points ladder is not a big deal for the club, however, the team’s main objective is to develop professional, highly disciplined players.
The club’s management and coaching staff have been working very hard in preparing a high performance team.
