Basketball By KEVIN TEME MTSL Exodus may have lost the semi final battle against Moni Plus 59-80 in the PNG Premier Men’s Basketball League but they are certainly building for a future. Coach Moses Koiri revealed this yesterday. “We lost because of inexperience and the lack of depth in players with skills and ability. “When we got beyond our 7th player, the inexperience was exposed and Moni Plus started to break away. Most of the boys have not been exposed to the kind of pressure they face when playing against more experienced teams and players like those in Moni Plus,” Koiri said. “Too many turn overs and when you don’t have the ball, you lose the opportunity to score points. But that will come in time and experience is all about ‘learning through doing’.” Koiri said the game against Moni Plus and generally playing in the PMBL competition this year as a team will go towards building their experience. But it wasn’t as expected when the Koiri led outfit shot all bullets in stock in the first three quarters only to be foul troubled in the dying minutes of the fourth quarter when Moni Plus ran away with baskets. “We anticipated Exodus will come strong in the game as they trained hard and they have a very determined squad,” Moni Plus coach Boyet Daroya said. Moni Plus in fact were without their star players Robert Kave, Michael Osborn, Don Elavo and Sydney Dobunaba due to injury and personal commitments, but, they managed to pull off the 80-59 victory. Exodus led 15-14 in the first quarter but didn’t continue in the next three quarters as Moni Plus took over second quarter leading 18-13 and maintained it to 18-16 in the third and finally running away in the fourth and final quarter 30-19 to convincingly win 80-59. Moni Plus will meet Flames in the best of the three series grand final with the first game set for next Tuesday straight after the National All Stars championship which kick off today. Koiri said: “We put our team together in February this year and our focus has been on teaching skills and game structures required to play at a competitive level. “We have had to re-build again because when we didn’t participate as a club in 2017, most of our players went to play for other clubs. “We are fortunate to have got Dia and Civan back for their experience in helping rebuild. I am pleased with the progress of our team thus far but our aim is to build a team for the future that will win the comp in a couple of years’ time; I believe that we will be ready by then.”
Rugby League BY SIMON KESLEP It is more than just playing rugby league or any other sporting code. England women’s rugby league skipper Emily Rudge told the Post-Courier their visit to Papua New Guinea will forever be treasured by all of them – first timers to visit the country. Rudge outside of the playing field is a teacher by profession. “Yes definitely! All my family and friends back home have been following our journey and eager to see what we were up to. We put pictures and news reports on social media and everybody have been really backing at home and also really excited about how it is like to be in PNG and how PNG value rugby league. “I am a teacher in a school so I’ll go back to the school and tell all the kids about this tour visit,” she said. Rudge, 28, is from Warrington in England and has been playing for St Helens women’s rugby league for about two years now since the England Women’s Super League started. The two test matches played recently in Goroka and Port Moresby gave the Englishwomen the experience to witness first-hand of how rugby league is followed by almost all Papua New Guineans and regarded as the number sport in the country. “We were massively excited to come to Papua New Guinea. It was a great opportunity for all the girls and obviously it is the first time many of us are here. It has been an amazing place and we loved every minute of it,” she said. Rudge said their main focus throughout the two Test matches against Oil Search PNG Orchids was to play at their highest standard and performance to be at a good level. “We want to make sure we compete with the best in the world like Australia and New Zealand. We also want to make sure our standard is of the highest as it can be.” Rudge said they heard a little bit about how PNG and its people’s love for rugby league before they travelled to PNG. “Yeah, we heard a little bit about it before we travelled out here (PNG) and I think it’s abit difficult to put it out into words – how much the people of Papua New Guinea have the love for rugby league. To hear about it and experience it is totally a different thing. It has been amazing; it’s far exceeded my expectations. I really did not know what to expect and it has been an amazing tour,” said Rudge. Her inspirational message to females who participate or wish to be involved in rugby league is to continue playing and one day you will be part of something great in the future. “Although it (women’s semi-professional competition) might not be possible to get that big in PNG, it will one day happen like what has happened to us in England Women’s Super League and in Australia,” she said.

Photo: nhl.czA new collective agreement has been agreed. Among other things, it will freeze the salary cap at 81.5 million for next season, and nowhere is it written that it will soon rise. Rather the opposite. Until the league reaches revenues of 4.8 billion, which was predicted for this year, it will be saved. That is the reality. Whether someone likes it or not. Payout money does not fall from the sky. They need to be earned. And the NHL earned much less than expected this year. It will most likely be the same next season, because it is very bold to expect the year to break out with full galleries.The new situation will affect different clubs and individuals differently. Deductions to the escrow stock account will pop up next year, which will affect everyone. Otherwise, players will get theirs. The main problem will be fighters without a contract. While previously elite hockey players in the state of unprotected free agents looked forward to July 1 and very often turned their noses at the offer of the original club to wait for the better, this year a lot of things can be different.And it’s not just about the date. The originally announced date of opening the mercenary exchange was November 1, now it seems that the market will start in mid-October. One week after the Stanley Cup, most likely October 9-11. According to Chris Johnson of Hockey Night in Canada, this means that the draft and the free market may start in parallel.Free agency for the 2020-21 NHL season will either be Oct. 9 or seven days following the Stanley Cup Final (as late as Oct. 11).That means we could have free agency open the same day as the first round of the entry draft is held. — Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) July 10, 2020What will they choose from?As every year, a lot of players were shaking at fat contracts. The largest fish in the transfer pond will be Taylor Hall of Arizona (pictured). Then there is Alex Pietrangelo from St. Louis, Braden Holtby of Washington, Torey Krug of Boston, Tyson Barrie of Toronto, Jacob Markström and Tyler Toffoli of Vancouver, Mike Hoffman and Yevgeny Dadonov of Florida, Robin Lehner of Las Vegas and many others.These guys are sure to find work, though probably not for the money they got last year. But somewhere at the end of the series there will be names that may be completely out of work. Hiring a salaried young man from a junior will be cheaper.In many cases it will be a necessity. Toronto overflows the salary cap most significantly, with the contract ending in a few players only in defense. They will have problems elsewhere. More than half of NHL clubs spend at the pay ceiling. They are the most environmentally friendly this year with 72.7 million in New Jersey, some space has Ottawa, Los Angeles, Colorado, Columbus, plus a few others. Otherwise it will be a fight.And beware, the salary cap may even fall! Should league sales (HRR) fall below $ 3.3 billion, it would cease to be 81.5 million guaranteed. This is probably not realistic, although with long-term closed stadiums it can happen. If the HRR is kept between 3.3 – 4.8 billion, the ceiling of 81.5 million applies. Lower limit of 60.2 million. If the league turnover exceeds 4.8 billion, the ceiling will increase.Top hockey is fun. Nothing more, nothing less. Entertainment is one of the goods with high elasticity of demand, economists say. You don’t necessarily need them, you can easily give them up. Back in the 1960s, NHL players routinely sought out civilian jobs over the summer to earn extra money. For example, Gordie Howe played baseball after the end of the hockey season, and his friends from the team worked in a car workshop. Today, NHL stars are lifelong millionaires, but even this state has its boundaries.The NHL is expecting a poor summer, actually autumn. And quite possibly a few more years.

Nasarawa United defender Chineme Martins has died after slumping midway into their Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) matchday 23 fixture against Katsina United at the Lafia Township Stadium on Sunday.Reports say he was rushed to the Dalhatu-Araf specialist hospital where he was pronounced dead.According to eyewitnesses and several videos which captured events at the stadium, the player wasn’t administered Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) at the time he slumped and the designated ambulance refused to start.The delay in the player receiving medical attention is likely to have contributed to his demise according to reports.Play continued with Nasarawa United taking all three points courtesy of Chinedu Ohanachom’s second-half hat trick.

Hearts of Oak midfield prodigy, Tawrick Djibril may not realise a dream appearance at the next U-20 World Cup next month. The player, whose showing last season raised calls for his inclusion into the youth team may have to wait for the next generation of U-20 group.Mr Jordan Anagbla, Chairman of the Black Satellites Management Committee speaking to the Graphic Sports confirmed that the player could not be included in the final list due to technical reasons.According to Anagbla, the player’s name was not included in a provisional list of 40 which was earlier sent to the Africa Football Confederation (CAF) in March this year in accordance with the rules of the competition, explaining that the rules did not allow players whose names were not on the provisional list to be included in the final list.“In fact, all players who were not on the provisional list are not eligible for the World Cup in Egypt.“When the names of the provisional list were being compiled by the coach, Tawrick was out of the country and even when he returned, he was not playing for Hearts and could not have been included in the team.“Indeed, some of the late invitations to the Satellites camp who even played in some of the friendlies for the team cannot make it into the final squad” Anagbla said. Tawrick, whose lightening skill was a source of delight to patrons of a Premier League which was plagued by a dearth of star performers last season was largely seen by many as a talent who should be a key factor in the Satellites build-up.“Even though I have heard the agitation for my inclusion into the team, and I will be glad to accept it, if the coaches invite me”, Tawrick stated.Meanwhile, according to Mr Anagbla, the final list for the World Cup squad would be sent to CAF next Wednesday.Source: Graphic Sports/Ghana
