PNG Hunters.

Predicting atleast 2 million viewers per game in the Queensland Cup. Amazing. This is a great article about the introduction of this new team and how huge this is in PNG.

Fascinating stuff.

 

Quite amazing that league can be banned in the schools in the only country in the world where is the national sport!

Fascinating insight and lets us know more about why png have been punching well below their weight! Hopefully the hunters and what they bring in organisation etc will flow onto the national side. A competitive png will be a massive boost to international rugby league, absolutely critical and could be a tipping point if we could bring France and Wales along at the same time

I agree entirely.
If we do this right the 2017 World Cup could be the one that firmly establishes us as the football code in the pacific. Bear in mind that png has by some distance the second largest population in the region.
If we play games in Fiji, Samoa and the Cook Islands we'll have the region covered.
I fear for the Notthern hemisphere though. If Toulouse don't come on board and succeed, and we continue to haemorrhage talent to the Dark Side (with everyone's best wishes, natch), then you couldn't blame the Aussies for concentrating their efforts on their own continent. Where the future looks bright.
To compare and contrast -
In the north - our World Cup poster boy gets Panfaced and ditches us, Wigan are swatted aside by a politely disinterested Roosters. Fewer than 1500 watch London's slow slide into final oblivion.
In the south - the 9s show case the appetite for our game and the breath taking stength in depth in talent in the region. The Roosters effortlessly swat Wigan aside to confirm the gulf between the 2 competitons. The World Cup launch shows a scale of ambition previously unknown in our game, and a pathway for regional dominance.
It's been a terrible week for those stuck in the Notthern hemisphere.

I meant the WC announcement. I assumed there was a launch as it made the BBC web site, and I have read some very tantalising press releases.

Reading this makes you wonder where PNG would be now had  the game been properly administered for the last 20 years.

 

Sound familiar ?

This is really exciting stuff - okay, it should have been done years ago, but you can't change the past.

Hunters :

 

The Photographers  surname is Head

 

The Footy Gods have a sense of humor.

 

 

It's an amazing , somewhat Eastern Block Communist 1970's model without the Syringes.

 

I admire them for it.

Fantastic article.

 

Th almost military style of life means that they will be a band of brothers in every sense of the word. All men paid equally will remove any prima donna posturing or petty jealousy.

 

I can't wait to see how the future develops for them. Well, I hope.

If that was in uk then fans would want P and R to rid the league of foreign teams who are taking a small villages place!

What are the chances of PNG becoming number 3 instead of England now the sport has got some leadership in the country?
