Southern Blacks head coach David Belo said the teams has training and preparing for over couple of weeks now are ready to take on the Vipers. “We are sticking to the basics and mending some weak areas that we need to improve on with our performance. “It is also to showcase some raw talent we have onboard who want to be exposed at a higher level of the competition. “The boys are confident and are capable of handling any tough situations. “We have players like Michael Koma (halfback), Isaac Ambo, Gora Tori Gini Tau, Kevin Sika (forwards) and additional key players in Dickson Otis and Yakis Benjiman (centres) and Rodney Andrew (five eight) are some of the notable players who will be on the field,” said Belo. In addition, MSRL Chairman Brown Murema has challenged the Vipers selectors to be cautious when selecting the players. “The support for the Vipers has dropped immensely over the years because there is no fairness in the selections. “The selection process is long overdue whereas selections are done only to one particular league and we want to take back the pride of NCD. “It must stop and we have to consider the fact that, there are other leagues who are affiliated to PNGRFL whose players must be considered to be in the Vipers. “There is an abundance of talented players in Port Moresby so just and fair selection would be appreciated if the city based players get selected for the Vipers. “The Vipers support will grow if there is fairness in the team,” said Murema.last_img
