PNG’s premier rugby league competition the 2012 Digicel Cup came to an end on the weekend.


In what was a close game the Mendi Muruks went into have time with the narrowest of leads 6 – 4. In the 2nd half the battle continued with Guria scoring just after the break. The Muruks hit back not long after to lead 10 – 8.

A try to Guria late in the game saw the Agmark Rabaul Guria’s defeated the Mendi Muruks 14-10 to claim the 2012 Digicel Cup.
