GEREHU’S Lagaip Brothers handed home side JP Isapea a one-sided 24-4 hiding in the Hohola off-season rugby league competition at Ipi Park at the weekend.
The visitors dented the Isapea’s unbeaten record in a game where they were unable to contain the opposition’s fire power from the kick off.
The Gerehu side, dressed in their new uniforms donated to them by United English club Whitehaven in a deal brokered by its PNG player Jessie Joe Nandye, were just ruthless in both defence and attack.
Nandye is set to re-join Whitehaven together with Kumul team-mate and new signing Larsen Marabe in the next year.
Brothers, powered by Wallen brothers Nelson and Dickson, who played for the Digicel Cup Gulf Isapea this year, were just too good walking away with the competition points.
Results: Depp Eels 20 Mutrus Brothers 0, Tia Broncos 2 Toks Warriors 0, Borderline Tigers 4 JV Panthers 4, Suburban Ducks 8 Freeway Bumpers 4, Elcom Dusts 4 Malipin Brothers 0, TST Fire Spiders 8 Rosewood Cowboys 8 and 3B Bulls 6 Tower Storms 4.
HOSL president Gairo Gavu said all players in the training squad for Hohola Reds and Tokarara Blues are reminded that the 2nd State of Origin is confirmed for Sunday and the final series the following week.
Gavu said from this series players would be trailled for the new National Capital District franchise.
