Hunters trailing 22-6 at half time

first_imgPoor defense from the PNG Hunters have left them trailing 22-6 to the Norths Devils at half time at Albert Bishop Park in Queensland.The Hunters looked strong in the opening minutes hitting the lead early through some magic from Wartovo Puara who put Noel Zemming into space.Zemming drew in the Norths defenders and threw a flick pass to Puara to score near the posts. Zemming then converted to lead 6-0.Norths soon hit back through some good foot work from Kodi Nikorama to run 50 meters to score in the wing.From there, the flood gates opened as the Norths ran in 3 more tries through Michael Lucas, BJ Munns and play maker Darren Nicholls.Nicholls has been the catalyst for Norths being involved in every try for his team, plus being tasked with the kicking responsibilities.last_img

Zidane summons James and Mariano again

first_imgGoalkeepers: Courtois, Areola and Altube.Defenses: Carvajal, Militão, Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Odriozola and Mendy.Midfielders: Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, Valverde, James and Isco.Strikers: Lucas Vázquez, Jović, Brahim, Mariano, Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo. Before travelling, the team worked out in Valdebebas to prepare the next game. The session was light with a precision work circuit, a ball control exercise and a pressure exercise. After that, the squad played a match in a small field and shot at goal. Hazard and Marco Asensio continued with their recovery processes and they were not with their classmates.This is the full list of summoned:realmadrid.com ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>The Real Madrid expedition, before traveling to Arabia.realmadrid.com Real Madrid has announced the list of summoned for the Spanish Super Cup, which will be held in Saudi Arabia from next Wednesday, January 8 to Sunday 12. As usual, Zinedine Zidane, with a degree at stake, has opted to bring all his available staff to the appointment, even to the players who are on the starting ramp like Brahim Y Mariano. James also travels, who despite being training with the group since December 19 had not yet been summoned, and Lucas and Marcelo, fully recovered from their physical problems. Do not travel injured like Eden Hazard, which does not arrive on time, o Marco Asensio, who still has several months left to get dressed again. Neither Benzema and Bale, last minute touches.However, the fact that the entire workforce travels to Saudi Arabia is symbolic, since the French coach will bet on the most common to try to defeat the Valencia (Wednesday, at 20:00 in Movistar Champions League) and, if successful, at Barcelona or at Atlético de Madrid in the end. Another conclusion that can be intuited from the collective call of Zidane is that none of the players called to leave the team in the winter transfer market is close to joining another club.last_img read more
