PNG to pick young Sevens side

The PNGRFL has decided to reward its up and coming players in the Rugby League World Sevens later this month announcing that players will be selected from the two President XIII sides which took on the Junior Kangaroos in Darwin and Port Moresby last year.

PNG, who have recently exposed a wealth of top class league talent in recent years, wants to show the rest of the Rugby League world what they have coming through, with the nation wanting to build a national team which can compete with the likes of Australia, New Zealand and Great Britain.

Michael Marum, John Wilshere, Nigel Hukula and Mack Siwi are likely to form the nucleus of the team which will be named later toay.

Winning President's Xlll coach Ivan Ravu will manage most of the Port Moresby based players, whilst Bob Bennett is expected to coach the Sevens side.
