Port Moresby Rugby League is looking to nurture young players and turn them into stars.
With the chairmanship of James Naipao, one of the key focus areas is to bring back junior competition.
The league existed ever since the inception of the code in the country and stands as a development pathway for now star-studded players in Digicel Cup and SP PNG Hunters.
The famous Port Moresby Rugby League competition, once known for having strong affirmation and mass participation, is now ready to revive their Junior Development Program.
Junior Rugby Football is one of the key development factors PNGRFL has outlined and stated clearly in the Team Kumul Program.
Venue was a main concern but that has been solved, with Ipi Park at Hohola as the current host venue, Gordons Police Barracks kicking off the women’s matches and Murray Barracks.
The round four matches eventuated over the weekend, having fair reps of crowd decided to spend the day catching up with some local footy action.
Two points were taken from Hohola Flies for tackle infringement in round two of the competition.
There have been vivid changes so far in the management of the competition, noting the new board in house including Wari Varage as the assistant to Dr. James Naipao, the former PNG Kumul.
Mr. Varage regarded the board as one hardworking team with similar objectives.
He supported the roll-out of the Junior Development Program.
