FC Morobe Wawens, who is making its debut in this year’s competition, will be looking for its first win against Buang FC. However, do Morobe Wawens have the quality of players that can push its claim?
Otherwise, Buang FC has proven in the last season that it has the calibre of players who can compete at that level after finishing off on a high note towards the end of the NSL season last year.
In Port Moresby, Besta United FC meets Southern Strikers in the other NSL match. Besta United FC coach Harrison Kamake has a lot of talented young guns who are mixing it with the big boys in the NSL and have definitely risen to the occasion at that level.
Kamake said Besta FC is the PNG development side but these youngsters have shown that they can mix it with their senior colleagues in the NSL.
He can see a bright and welcoming future for the current Besta PNG United FC players in football.
