A premiership dream worth waiting for Magani

first_imgBy KEVIN TEME A premiership title is worth waiting for Magani rugby league club that is currently participating in the country’s premier league, the South Pacific Brewery Ltd sponsored Port Moresby rugby league competition. Magani club is made up of mixture of players from various cultures and background all around the country with most of these players currently residing in Port Moresby. Magani have fall short to that dream of winning the PRL premiership title on a few occasions one being in 2007 against Brothers and it is certainly a dream that is being a long wait for head coach Chris Enara. Brushed aside the regionalism and despite the respective players’ background, the Magani are band of brothers who live, eat and walk rugby league and feel pride in donning the color of the South Sydney Rabbitohs in the NRL as their outfit every time they run onto the paddock for their respective matches. Certainly for coach Enara and like any other coach such as Panther’s Richard Wagambie, the Aroma lad not only acted as a coach but a mentor to many of these youths who have strolled or walked or even run into this club to show case their hidden talents. With so many of these players having made it into the Kumuls side, one thing that has been evading them for a long time now is a premiership title for the club. This premiership dream is soon to become a reality as the Chris Enara coached side lines up this Sunday against a full strength Richard Wagambie’s Paga Panthers outfit in the main A grade game. Both clubs have come a long way this season by keeping their grand final hopes alive, and it won’t be an easy task for Magani when they face the Panthers. “I think this year, we have achieved one thing at a time and that is making short term goals which worked out well for us. We’ve come this far believing in our structure and we’ll work hard to improve on it and polish up on our defense,” Enara said. “This year, we didn’t look too far ahead rather we just set ourselves short term goals and achieved it slowly. The goals motivated the boys to play for each other and here we are ending here in the semi final against Panthers,” Enara said. Enara said the goal was to win three out of the five games played in the opening round and not to their surprise they won five straight games. “When we realised we had enough points we set ourselves a goal to finish in the top four which we did. Coming this far is a bonus and now we are within striking distance and we’ll surely give it our full,” Enara said.last_img
