The players are in camp in Mt Hagen preparing for the semi-professional competition.
Eagles chairman Bob Pakindi said he was excited by the talent in the side and was confident that 2015 would be a big improvement on their previous year, when they finished second last.
“I’m confident even though this year will be challenging but we have the talent to be competitive,” Pakindi said.
He said the Eagles had not been to the playoffs in three seasons but he was hoping for a change this year.
He commended coach James Kops for picking the province’s best talent and was sure the former Kumul would have the side firing for the Digicel Cup campaign in March.
Pakindi said with the support of major sponsor Wamp Nga Holdings and minor sponsors, the Eagles would rise to be one of the premiership contenders.
Kops said it was important the side played a different brand of football in 2015 and used the speed and talent it had in the back-line.
“We have been a finishing in the bottom half of the competition over the past seasons but I think this year will be different for us,” Kops said.
