Share the News

The brothers have been playing alongside each other for the past four years, since joining the Penrith Panthers.

Although living in another country and away from family may not be new to the pair, they have left knowing the different challenges waiting for them in England.

Despite the challenges, the Albert brothers are looking forward to having a successful 2018 season as Vikings.

After leaving the Panthers and returning to PNG, the duo thought their Rugby League journey was over, till they were called to join the Hunters train-on squad last year.

They thanked the PNGRFL and the SP PNG Hunters team and management for giving them another opportunity to continue their rugby league career.

PNGRFL CEO, Reatau Rau, said the Management is delighted to see Stanton and Wellington further their careers in the Super League.

He said this has created a pathway for more Papua New Guineans to join teams in England.

The Albert brothers will be dedicating their time in England to their late teammate and close friend, Kato Ottio, who was set to join the Widnes Vikings before his sudden passing on the 9th of January.

Elder brother, Nixon Albert said he was excited at the opportunity given to his younger brothers, and encouraged the duo to continue being respectable ambassadors of PNG while in England.
