Souths Arts Warriors eye back to back titles

first_imgRugby League BY PATRICK NIATO TOM Defending champions Souths Arts Warriors are eyeing a back to back title in the University of Papua New Guinea rugby league as they head into the second week of the qualifying finals tomorrow. Arts Warriors who claimed the title last year will leave no stone unturned and will stick to the basics of giving their opponents a good run for their money against arch rivals Veari Spiders in the second finals qualifier. Warriors survived a scare last week when they pushed their way back to finals contention after defeating SBA West Eagles 6-1 to come out victorious in extra time in an epic finals showdown. The 2018 defending premiers will be determined to push hard for a win to keep their finals dream alive. However, the road to final will not be a new journey for the silent killers who started their finals campaign on a similar fashion playing all sudden death footy last year to make it to the grand final and eventually stake claim to the trophy. This time the former champions and 2017 premiers Spiders will try to stop their dominance but, to do that they will have to cure their wounds from last weekend loss to the SOL Brothers and build on a winning combination to face the Warriors. Arts Warriors Coach Jerry Allan said they have really work hard for this game as they know the Spiders will come out strong and put up a good challenge for an intense finals footy. “We are taking one game at a time and will be polishing on ball drills and defense which is the key factor if we are to win this match.” “We will maintain the same winning team from last week but, slight changes will be made for our boys who are carrying minor injuries if it needs to so that we come with a solid team to face the Spiders,” Allan said.last_img read more

We wanted to be in the final and fight for the trophy we so desired.“Whilst we congratulate Sevilla for making it to the final, we still played well and we didn’t deserve to stop here.”And writing as if he were already a United player, Jurado wrote: “We keep fighting.”Spanish star Jurado has been at Barca’s famed La Masia academy for the past nine years. However, he has decided to try his luck in England despite still being a teenager – just like Cesc Fabregas and Gerard Pique.Barcelona were confident of keeping Jurado tied down to the club after seeing fellow prospects Ansu Fati and Ilaix Moriba commit to new deals.However, United are now toasting the capture of the highly-rated prodigy as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to invest in youth and bring back the glory years to Old Trafford.Jurado was born in Sabadell, some 18 miles from Barcelona, in Catalunya.He showed promise playing for his local team, CFU Can Rull before he joined La Masia aged seven.Jurado was considered an important part of Barcelona’s future, and after tying down Fati and Moriba to long-term contracts their hierarchy were hopeful Jurado would follow suit.But, it is believed he feels he will have a better chance of first team football playing for United.A modern full-back in the Spanish mould of Bellerin, Jurado does his best work going forward.Blessed with bags of pace, he constantly looks to overlap and provide an attacking threat on the right-hand side.He was one of the best players in Barcelona’s Cadet A team this season, and it was expected that he was going to promoted to their Juvenil B side.Man Utd wage bill revealed with Dean Henderson set to take home same amount as Bruno Fernandes after new contract Top 5 Best Budget Hotels In Dubai under AED 400 a night.last_img read more
