30 January 2018 – Match week two of Perak Rugby League saw Carnivoran Mongoose recorded winning start in this year league. The team is in Pool B alongside last year runner-up, Ipoh Lions as well as Polis Perak.
Carnivoran had the perfect match as they scored 5 tries against Polis Perak. Shahrul Izham bin Talib contributed the most points with 12 as Cornivoran beat Polis Perak 34 – 12.
Match week 3 will see Carnivoran take on Ipoh Lions. The team captain, who is also their key player, Ridhwan Sulaiman will need to play an important role in guiding this team pass Lions. Ridhwan already contributed 5 points to the team through a penalty and a conversion in the first match.
The team is being formed with the mix of young and well-experienced player. It will be interesting to see Shahrul Izham bin Talib and Mohammad Shah Izwan Nordin who is also part of SUKMA Perak 2017 team to drive this team forward.
Carnivoran will have to shift to another gear in match week 3. They will take on Ipoh Lions on 4th February 2018. The winner of that match will top Pool B as the top two will advance to the semi-final.
Both teams will be eager to win the match and avoid last year champion, RMR Warriors in the semi-final.
