Shortly after their return from their 2-month training under the guidance and supervision of ACT Brumbies Coaching staff, the PNG Pukpuks 7’s team has departed for Glasgow and the Commonwealth Games.
The team has now been grouped in pool A with some of the toughest competition in rugby 7’s.
Under the strict supervision of the ACT Brumbies coaching staff, the Pukpuks are now better-equipped to take on the challenge set on their rugby calendar this year, the Commonwealth Games being the first.
Increasing the level of fitness and having them assessed on skills and mental toughness has shown results throughout the duration of the program.
Their on-and-off field behavior is also vital against the competition that they will face in the coming tournaMen’s after the Commonwealth Games.
After their appearance in the bowl finals against Canada in New Delhi, the young guns of the squad are predicted to lift the game and equalize or exceed their New Delhi performance.
The squad also sees the recall of speed star Albert Levi Jr.
With 20-year-old Manu Guise named as the playmaker of the squad, along with other young guns of rugby, Billy Torea, Bulter Morris and Wesley Vali, who are no strangers to representative rugby, the squad looks promising.
The Pukpuks are in Pool C and will be competing against Samoa, Wales and Malaysia.
Both players and coaches are enthusiastic and hope that the country will get behind their run in the Commonwealth Games this month.
