PNGRFL Expands Coaching And Referee Programs

PNG Rugby Football League continued arming its referees and coaches with the basics and current changes of the rules.

This Rugby League-mad nation is going one step further, with coaching and refereeing lessons carried throughout the country.


Under the restructured Team Kumul Program, the main focus is on developing a pathway for juniors and domestic competition.


The first step to be taken by PNGRFL in executing the program is the training of coaches and referees.


They started off with Southern Region, followed by New Guinea Islands and now Highlands Region.


Highlands Regional Director Joe Tokam, along with National Development Manager Toksy Nema and Shane Morris, has been helping in the coaching department.


Thirty-four participants attended the Goroka clinic with Wayne Wool, who delivered talks on refereeing and made aware the latest changes of the rules.


Meanwhile Jiwaka Province was star struck to see Queensland Maroons coach and PNGRFL Team Kumul Director Mal Meninga, who arrived yesterday to launch the school boys program.


The Program impacted the lives of youngsters who would like to take up the sport.


The recent success of our U-19 boys at the commonwealth exhibition tournament is one worth noting.
