Royals book grand final spot

BANGUI Royals defeated minor premiers LBC Warriors 22-16 to book the first grand final berth in Globe Madang Rugby Football League at the Ron Albert Oval last Sunday.
Warriors handed the game over to Royals on a golden plate by going to sleep for 60 minutes of the game after doing well in the opening 20 minutes when they led 16-8.
By half-time, the Warriors had allowed the Royals to reduce the margin to 16-12 and in the final stanza their mistake rate shot to the roof and the policemen made them pay to remain scoreless.
Warriors scored first to lead 4-0 in the opening 10 minutes and when Royals levelled to 4-4, the opposition added three more tries.
But Royals capitalised on the mounting Warriors mistakes and several telling indiscretions by former SP Cup referee Saea Kavora, which included a try that was scored from a forward pass.
Warriors will now play the winners of the re-match between Ela Diwai and Hawks on Sunday to have another crack at advancing to the grand final.
The Diwai-Hawks match was called off by referee Joe Boi because it was getting dark.
Diwai were leading 18-12 with 12 minutes on the clock.
