There is a call for those involved to be arrested and sent to the cellars, meanwhile the Prime Minister has called for investigations into this incidents which included the burning down of certain government properties as well.

A sad day for the flag carrier.

A Touching Testimony That Brought A Lump In My Throat

This week has been a sad week for a lonlt of people in the country and rugby league's circle with the loss of a humble Papuan rising star.
He had touched people of all walks of life in Papua New Guinea and abroad.
And most people talked of his humblesness and smile that brightened up the room.
He was a silent achiever and had that unintentional effect of drawing people to him.
I met him a couple of times through my involvement with the Rugby League World matches as a Master of Ceremony and that is what I picked out straight away. His humblesness.
Now the Nation mourns his sudden loss.
Below is a wonderful heartbreaking story by Lahui Ako that brought a lump to my throat as I read through. Please click on the link and read.
And please come back and leave a comment or two about this story..

Hebou PNG U19 Garamuts advance to ICC U19 World Cup


ALL Media, PNG – Monday 14th August, 2017

The HEBOU PNG Under 19 (U19) Garamuts confirmed their place in the 2018 ICC U19 Cricket World Cup (CWC) with an emphatic eight (8) wicket victory over Samoa in the fifth match of the ICC U19 East-Asia-Pacific (EAP) Qualifier today in Apia, Samoa.

Needing a win to ensure that they claim the 2018 ICC U19 CWC EAP Qualifier and qualify for the U19 World Cup next year, the Hebou PNG U19 Garamuts were asked to field first on another hot day in Apia. The Garamuts started shackly with the ball, before the spinners started making inroads into the Samoan batting lineup. Samoa took it to the previously undefeated Garamuts, before being eventually bowled out for 89 in only 38.4 overs. Leke Morea was the star with the ball taking 3/10 off only seven (7) overs, while spin duo Ovia Sam (3/24) and Toua Morgan (2/17) also icked up valuable wickets.

 In reply, the Hebu PNG U19 Garamuts’ openers, Simon Atai (35) and Igo Mahuru (31*) continued their great form of late by putting on 71 runs for the opening wicket. The Garamuts eventually chased down the target of 90, losing a couple of wickets inside 20 overs.  

“I am very proud of what the boys achieved over the past week or so here in Samoa. We came to Samoa with a mission to qualify for our eighth ICC U19 World Cup and now we can say that we have done that. We must soak in what we have achieved as it is very special,” said a delighted Hebou PNG U19 Garamuts’ Coach, Kila Pala.

 Hebou NG U19 Garamuts’ captain Vagi Karaho was elated after the match and with news of their qualification quickly filtering back home, it was clear just how much it meant for these young Garamuts to earn their place back in the World Cup.

“It’s a really big opportunity for us to play in the World Cup. The boys are very proud, we are feeling very proud for our country,” said Karaho after the match.

 Reflecting on what this means for the supporters back home in PNG, Karaho went on to say “all of the people where we are from are very supportive, I think they are more proud than us.”

Leke Morea was awarded the Man of the Match Award for his brilliant spell of bowling which brought back the figures of 3/10 off seven (7) overs.

The Hebou PNG U19 Garamuts will play their final match of the tournament against Vanuatu tomorrow, who lost to Fiji in the other match today.

The HEBOU PNG Under 19 Garamuts have now qualified for their eighth (8th) ICC U19 CWC in New Zealand next year, after qualifying for the ICC Under CWC in 1998 (South Africa), 2002 (New Zealand), 2004 (Nepal), 2008 (Malaysia), 2010 (New Zealand), 2012 (Australia) and 2014 (UAE). The 2018 ICC Under 19 CWC which will be held in New Zealand from the 12thJanuary to the 4th February, 2018

Last Home Game For The Hunters

This Sunday's match will be a whooper of a match as the SP PNG  Hunters look to securing the 2017 minor premiership in the Intrust Super Cup at the National Football Stadium.
It'll be extraordinary as the Wynnum Manly Seagulls look to cause an upset. The Seagulls also have included PNGs very own son David Mead in their team, so it'll be a game to watch as he lines up against his brothers.
It'll be a great family day out to be remembered.

We hope to see you there!
