Pukpuks Sharpen Focus On Commonwealth Games

Fereti Verebula has done well in ensuring that his team executes exactly what previous teams have been lacking. 

In a telephone interview earlier today, Verebula said he was ready to change the image of sevens rugby in Papua New Guinea, with the confidence to do exceptionally well at the Commonwealth Games in the hopes of increasing their International Rugby Board ranking.


For young guns like Emmanuel Guise, strength and conditioning training has been challenging, but the boys have shifted their focus to excelling at the Commonwealth Games.


With so much emphasis on the Monier-Brumbies program, coach Verebula is certain that the team has benefitted and have certainly developed over the past two months.


Following the strict Brumbies player guidelines, all boys will have undergone a medical test to prove that all players are medically fit to travel.


As the boys head into their final weekend in the Capital of Australia, the team of 12, excluding Albert Levi who’s already in the country, will depart for Port Moresby on Tuesday.


An experience out of the ordinary, the challenge now remains in upholding the standards and level of professionalism the players acquired while under the Australian Institute of Sport regime.
