The Papua New Guinea National Rugby League Competition Judiciary have suspended Bintangor Goroka Lahanis winger, Amos Kafare, for three years after pleading guilty to detrimental conduct.

The incident occurred in a match against Kimbe Cutters earlier this season.

Mr. Kafare was charged with detrimental conduct which resulted in him making deliberate and unnecessary contact with a match official.

Due to that, he was suspended for three years and not authorized to compete until or after 28 April 2027.

General Manager of Pathways and Performance, Tony Archer explained that this type of behaviour towards match officials is an extremely serious matter.

Mr. Archer revealed that Mr. Kafare immediately pleaded guilty and sought time, which was granted and has not played since the incident.

He further shared, in the first 8 rounds over 60 players have been charged and suspended with various on-field offences.

“We will continue to work hard on identifying foul play incidents in matches. They will work closely with the teams to educate them on the rules and regulations whilst still holding players responsible for their on-field action,” said Archer.
