Stage set for 2015 Digicel Cup grand final

first_img15 000 plus people are expected to pour into the stadium today to watch the final game of the season.The stakes couldn’t get any higher than this, the winner to have bragging rights as champions of rugby league in the country.Being seasoned grand finalists, the Gurias will want to make right their wrongs after their humiliating 34-8 loss to the Hela Wigmen in last year’s grand final.For the Lions, waiting nearly two decades to play in a grand final is more than enough motivation to drive the Simbu boys home to a win.In their two meets this season, both sides came away with a win each.The Lions narrowly beat the Gurias 12-10 at home in round 12.Round 15 saw the Gurias take their revenge at Kalabond when they thrashed the Lions 34-6.The grand final kicks off at 3pm.Before this will be the curtain raiser which is the third and fourth place play off between the Hela Wigmen and Lae Tigers at 12pm.last_img read more

Rio 2016 Opening ceremony anticipated to be “the biggest event in the world”

first_imgDetails of the opening ceremony are always a closely-guarded secret, but what is known is that the budget for Rio’s festivities is substantially lower than the £31m devoted to director Danny Boyle’s London 2012 extravaganza.Reports in 2015 suggested Rio ceremony director Fernando Meirelles – who made films like City of God and The Constant Gardener – could be working with as little as one-tenth of Boyle’s budget.Organisers told the BBC that Rio’s ceremony will still be “the biggest event in the world – not just Brazilian culture but world culture”.There is no ticketed sports action outside the opening ceremony on Friday, but there is still some activity at Rio’s Sambadrome. Similarly to London 2012, archery holds its behind-closed-doors ranking round to seed the competitors for the events ahead.last_img read more
