Players from the PNG Barramundis have been split into two teams- the Hanuabada Hawks and the Central & Koitabu Eagles and will battle it out in a 30 over match.President of the Port Moresby Cricket Association (POMCA), Dean Ani said the Tony Elly Cup is the pre-season opener to the International Training Institute sponsored POMCA 2016 season.The team;Hanuabada Hawks:J Vare, V Morea, M Dai, S Bau, L Siaka, R Hekure, P Raho, L Nou, A Nao, J Reva, R Haoda, J Dairi, D Bau, K Arua, Seia Ovia (Coach)/ S Loa (Team Manager).Central/ Koita Eagles:A Vala ©, CJ Amini, N Vanua, K Pala, J Kila, A Lahari, K Doriga, Ratu Maha, N Pokana, Jeremiah Kila, G Baeau, H Hiri, P Pegi, Daure Kila, M Hobart (Coach)/Chris Amini (Team Manager).The match will start at 11am.
“We know it’s going to be a back and forth affair, an end to end battle, and will come down to who wants it most. It will take both team and individual resilience to withstand the pressure of the fans and emphasis placed on this game,” said Weatherly. “This is not just an everyday final. This is the battle of the CCs, as they say, mid-Jamaica verse Western Jamaica, one where there is a revenge factor from two years ago creeping in and also the 1998 finals where we lost 1-0 to them,” he added. “We don’t want a recurrence of that. Cornwall College is on a path to create history and don’t want them to be stopping us.” Back-and-forth affair “He (Chung-Fah) started it so we have to just do this for him. The players are buying into it, they walked with his picture (last week) and will do so (today) also. Winning the title is a boost for them to do something for Chung-Fah,” said Hyde. “It’s going to be a tough game but we are looking forward to playing against a good Cornwall team. It will come down to who executes on the day and who makes the least amount of mistakes. We have to be vigilant, disciplined and courageous out there as well as enjoy the moment. Clarendon will be looking to key players Nicque Daley, Lamar Walker and Ricardo McIntosh who are all national youth representatives. “They have to come with their A-game, because to win, your star players have to perform. They have to go out and lead from the front, because the team will feed off how good they play,” Hyde said. Cornwall College’s coach, Dr Dean Weatherly has his eyes set on the historic treble this season, by winning the daCosta Cup to advance to the Olivier Shield to add to the Champions Cup. He is however aware of what is at stake and what they need to do to write their names in history. The battle for rural area supremacy heats up in the ISSA/WATA daCosta Cup final when Cornwall College take on Clarendon College in what will see a clash of the CCs in their quest to reveal the real ‘mCCoy’. The match is set to kick off at 6 p.m. in the Montego Bay Sports Complex, this evening, where Cornwall, playing in their own backyard, will be looking to take confidence from their historic ISSA Champions Cup win there last week. Clarendon will be looking to have their revenge on Cornwall, who knocked them out of both the daCosta Cup and the Champions Cup (formerly the Super Cup) in 2016 when they last met each other. However, Cornwall also has some avenging to do, as the last time both teams met in a daCosta final, Clarendon College walked away 1-0 victors in 1998. Both teams share 19 daCosta Cup titles, with Cornwall holding the record at 12 with their last coming in 2016. Lenworth Hyde, coach of Clarendon, is aware that it will be no easy task against the only unbeaten team in schoolboy football this season. He is also hunting his first daCosta Cup title as a coach in the same year that the of the passing of Winston Chung-Fah, the coach that lead him to this title as a player. This is extra motivation for him. Doing it for Chung-fah

1 Alexis Sanchez is set to join Arsenal Arsenal fans feared the worst this summer as they watched their rivals bring in big names with no one arriving through the Emirates doors, but the imminent capture of Alexis Sanchez has changed everything.In what is arguably the biggest Premier League transfer of the summer, the Chilean is set to leave Barcelona for north London after Gunners boss Arsene Wenger revealed to talkSPORT it was a done deal.Cesc Fabregas’ move to Chelsea last month hurt Gooners with many turning on Wenger but there’s no doubting Sanchez’s switch has more than made up for it.With confidence restored, Arsenal fans took to Twitter to lavish praise on their manager for rejecting an old fan favourite in favour of landing the World Cup star.Check out the best reaction below.
In a message to Congress, the president said he was sending the bill and his outline of objections to the House clerk “to avoid unnecessary litigation about the non-enactment of the bill that results from my withholding approval, and to leave no doubt that the bill is being vetoed.” Democratic aides said they have not ruled out any legislative options, including dropping the language on lawsuits against Iraq and sending the rest of the bill back to Bush. The sponsor of the contested provision, Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., said the provision would allow “American victims of terror to hold perpetrators accountable – plain and simple.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan ClarksonBush’s decision to use a pocket veto, announced while vacationing at his Texas ranch, means the legislation will die at midnight Dec. 31. This tactic for killing a bill can be used only when Congress is not in session. The House last week adjourned until Jan. 15; the Senate returns a week later but has been holding brief, often seconds-long pro forma sessions every two or three days to prevent Bush from making appointments that otherwise would need Senate approval. Brendan Daly, spokesman for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said, “The House rejects any assertion that the White House has the authority to do a pocket veto.” When adjourning before Christmas, the House instructed the House clerk to accept any communications – such as veto messages – from the White House during the monthlong break. A Democratic congressional aide pointed out that a pocket veto cannot be overridden by Congress and allows Bush to distance himself from the rejection of a major Pentagon bill in a time of war. CRAWFORD, Texas – President Bush on Friday used a pocket veto to reject a sweeping defense bill because he dislikes a provision that would expose the Iraqi government to expensive lawsuits seeking damages from the Saddam Hussein era. In a statement, Bush said the legislation “would imperil billions of dollars of Iraqi assets at a crucial juncture in that nation’s reconstruction efforts.” The president’s objections were focused on a provision deep within legislation that sets defense policy for the coming year and approves $696 billion in spending, including $189 billion for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Also in the legislation were improved veterans benefits and tighter oversight of contractors and weapons programs. The pocket veto means that troops will get a 3 percent raise Jan. 1 instead of the 3.5 percent authorized by the bill.
IS DONEGAL IMPOSSIBLY REMOTE? ONE YANK WEBSITE SAYS SO…..IT’S ALWAYS great when Donegal gets a plug – especially abroad where it can bring tourists to the county.But one dreadful American website which markets itself to the Irish-American community managed to plug us AND insult us all in ONE paragraph.IrishCentral.com normally carries old stories from the auld sod. And one feature (to be fair to them) includes Donegal as one of the top ten places to see during a holiday in Ireland.The paragraph reads: “You take the high road.. to the Donegal highlands, again impossibly remote and almost inaccessible, but well worth the effort. Towering mountains, wild seas, and gorgeous scenery, perhaps Ireland’s best-kept secret.”Impossibly remote? Almost inaccessible?“Only if you want to climb Mount Errigal in January perhaps,” said one tourist official. “It’s great to get Donegal even mentioned in American media because they end up in Dublin and Kerry when they do come over.“It’s a quite stupid thing to say. We have two airports serving the county from Carrickfin and Derry. Belfast International is 90 minutes away – and you can be here from Dublin in 40 minutes by air, which is faster than the link from Dublin to Kerry.“It’s a bit of dumb thing to write.”YANKS BUT NO THANKS: BARMY AMERICAN WEBSITE RECKONS DONEGAL IS TOO FAR AWAY! was last modified: April 6th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:dumbirishcentral.comold storiesstupid
