Competition heats up for final stretch

The Van’s Premier Men’s Puaikura versus Nikao Sokattak clash at Raemaru Park today promises to be a fast paced match. With the championship title almost over, these two contenders will look to secure a second place finish in the Rarotonga Round Cup Competition

This is an important game for both teams, particularly for Puaikura, who were defeated last week by the front-runners of the Van’s Premier Men’s Round Cup Competition Tupapa Maraerenga.

Maintaining a high level of play on both sides of the field will be key for Puaikura. There is more than enough skill in this team to come out on top. They have both the talent and the desire needed to do just that.

On the other side for the visiting team, Alex Napa’s men are good enough to win the game, if they really want to, but Puaikura certainly won’t go down without a fight.

There’s no shortage of motivation for either team today. With four games left on their Round cup competition schedule, coming out of this match up with the maximum points are of utmost priority for both these teams.

It’s a critical weekend for these two clubs in order to close the gap on leaders Tupapa Maraerenga.

The race for the Islander Senior Women’s Round Cup Competiton title is still relatively close but with Tupapa Maraerenga in the driver’s seat. They will look to best Matavera today to cushion their lead on the points table with Titikaveka following closely behind.

The other venue today will be at Victoria Park with Tupapa Maraerenga hosting Matavera.
