    We are Piggies!

    ESI Loan University Piggies lose forward George Oki scored a hat-trick and re-wrote the history books in spearheading his team to a 51-14 thrashing of Trukai Kone Sharks in the Port Moresby premier rugby union grand final on Sunday.
    Oki played one of his best performances to score four tries, the first in a grand final by a forward.
    This is the Piggies’ third consecutive grand final win and it was Oki and Charlie Maip who played a blinder and never took their eyes off the big prize.
    Piggies’ coach John Pangkatana paid tribute to the duo’s top performance adding “both were our outstanding players and I’ve never seen them put in so much in a game”.
    “Oki kept on hitting and digging in the defence, the same as Maip who just kept on going and going. Their hard work in the forwards was just phenomenal,” Pangkatana said.
    Sharks had nothing to lose but came into the final with a hope of pulling of one of the greatest upsets ever at Bava Park.
    But it seemed less likely to happen as Piggies’ tactics added to their experience proved a handful for the Konedobu boys.
    Piggies’ plan was simple and as directed by Pangkatana, their forwards ran riot.
    Piggies knowing Sharks flashy back line had to make them work. For the first 20 minutes Piggies just kept on digging into Sharks’ defence to tire them down.
    And it was experience at its best with Sharks knowing little about how to counter attack. This played into the Piggies’ hands.
    That’s when Oki opened his hat-trick of tries capitalising on Sharks’ tattered defence up front.
    Paul “PJ” Joseph’s inclusion and Gabriel Tika for Piggies in the centre did some damage and they were well supported by the new blood of Piggies stars. Piggies man-of-the-match Ramon Romalus’ hard work in support play stole the prize away from Oki.
    Sharks Danny Kais and danger man Joe Stegman tried hard but couldn’t pull out something special. Stegman, however proved he is still the best on the flank after zigzagging between four Piggies to touch down. Kais scored the other try with Edwin Noki converting both tries.
    Piggies showed no mercy as they gave Sharks the baptism of fire leading 32-7 at the break. David Eri scored two, while Ralph Susuve, Israel and Jack Susuve scored one each in the first half.
    Piggies’ Willie Riki, Shadrach Oki, Wesley Thomas, Koini Kidi, brothers Jack and Ralph, Israel and David Eri played well.
    For Sharks it was Noki, Joshua Sagati, Clive Tetac, Daniel Gaguru, Caleb Pepson and Denzil Agi who tried hard in defence to stop the Piggies but couldn’t.
    Coach Pangkatana was happy with his boys adding, they had done well for themselves.
    “We’ve got some new blood coming in and they have tasted premier and grand final this year so it’s good for the club in the long run,” he said.
