The program proved successful in Port Moresby and has attracted interest from Rabaul, Buka, Goroka and Lae.

 

PNGRFU delivered rugby balls, training bibs, cones, whistles and medical kits as well as classroom materials and training manuals for students and teachers to conduct lessons and practice sessions to 8 nominated schools in Rabaul, East New Britain this week.
