Porgera Youths Turn to Sports

Share the News
Lagaip Porgera Electorate is well known for law and order problems in the country.


However this will become something of the past after the youths have decided to turn away from tribal fights and other illegal activities, to play rugby league and live a meaningful life in their respective areas.

Mr Takon said previously, only Porgera and Laiagam Rugby Leagues existed but since the new centres were introduced last month, over 5,000 youths are participating in all the 6 leagues.


He said the games were organised also in line with the Papua New Guinea Rugby Football League’s new policy, which was introduced last year to take rugby league to rural areas.


 “The 6 local leagues are already off the ground and we need support from community leaders, government institutions, private organisations and individuals to assist us for player registrations, league affiliation, goal posts, field improvements and player uniforms,” Mr Takon said.


He also said that his aim for Rugby League go rural is not a political propaganda, nor economical greed but pure optimism to develop rugby league in the district to show case their talents to the nation.
