Defence Rugby Club Revive After 9 Years

The club has attracted former players, coaches and supporters, in the aim of building a once well-known force in the Lae League competition. Known for their advocate of followers, the Defence Club was revived by Club President Major Michael Marai, as a tool by the club to unite its players, and bring back the team to its glory days.


Former Mendi Muruks Head Trainer, Corporal Mark Barry, availed his time to coach a vibrant Defence side for the Easter Challenge in Lae. The team, consisting of a mobile utility pack, was successful in finishing their Pool matches, with a draw and all wins to secure a spot in the finals against Jaka Knights.


The Defence outfit proved too strong and defeated Jaka Knights 10-8. Millenium Guard Security, has also come on board as minor sponsors, to support the club’s Man and Women of the match titles in its Rugby League campaign this season.


President of Lae Rugby, Russel Kaupa, and officials hail the efforts and determination of the club and its management, and hopes the support will continue throughout the year.


Defence is a feeder club to Digicel Cup teams, Enga Mioks, and News team Snax Tigers, and will be one of the teams competing in the Lea League Season that kicks off this weekend.
