Digicel Cup is into round 2 and soon we'll be able to know which teams will make up the top 5.
I tip Lahanis to maintain their supremacy and finish in top 5,along with the Gurias,Mioks,Vipers and Muruks.Lae Tigers and Isapeas will finish at the bottom,Simbu Lions will finish above them and Eagles bow out of top 5.
Im from Enga/Souths but I strongly belive that the Bintagor Goroka Lahanis will defenatly and easly win the Digicel Cup back for 2012, Why ??? because of their atitudes when you watch them carefully, man I tell you, They play real footy with very high standard of discipline and game plans so I as an Mangi blon Souths I know for sure they'll get it back.
Do you know y lahanis is so good???
They have a very strong off season league...called the gahuku league..in which 30-40 teams aroung goroka,ungai/bena and daulo participate...
hence the selectors are able to select the best out of the many..
Having lots of talent to choose from is one thing but managing that talent to achieve the overall team objective is another. Current Lahanis management have chosen to blood youngsters (on a wholesale level) this season and are paying the price by having too many easy losses when they should have been easy wins. Whatever wins they have enjoyed are not convincing wins either. It takes time for a team to gel and Lahanis havent gelled at all this season. Still very inconsistent. With the loss to Muruks at home, I doubt Lahanis will make the finals this season.
