The National, Monday 15th April, 2013

 THE Papua New Guinea Binatangs lived up to pre-tournament favouratism and completed an unbeaten run through the tournament to take out the AFL Pacific Cup title. 

Unbeaten after the draw against Oceania last Tuesday, PNG 10.6 (69) thrashed a hapless New Zealand 1.4 (10) last Thursday to claim the 2013 junior Auusie rules title.

Upon the completion of the last match on Thursday, a 30-player squad was selected to take on the Kickstart Flying Boomerangs. 

This initial squad will be reduced further to 25 to compete in the NAB AFL U16 national championships to be held in Sydney in July.
