ROYALS Rugby League Club in Port Moresby yesterday received an additional support from support sponsor, the City Force Security Services (CFSS) with a donation of K5,000.
CFFS managing director Markhill Marney Nepe said the reason for supporting Royals was to ensure the youth participate in rugby league.
As a former representative player with the Capital Cowboys almost a decade ago during the Australia Rugby League and the Super League war, the Simbu man said he felt obliged to contribute some form of assistance, no matter how small it was to help the police team.
He urged unemployed youths to stay away from illegal activities and concentrate on sports that could change their lifestyles.
Nepe, who was part of the Hiri Chiefs that played North Queensland Cowboys in 1998, said this was the first time for his firm to assist a sporting team.
Royals’ president Timothy Gena thanked CFFS for the donation, which would help in administering the affairs of the club.
Since taking over as president, Gena has secured a number of sponsors to ensure the club is competitive this year.
Royals have retained most of their players and were looking forward to a good season.
