RUGBY League teams that have not met their requirements with the Gomis League in Mt Hagen are urged to complete theirs before the finals next month.
League president Simon Yane said the league had completed the requirements such as affiliation with the PNGRFL and urged the 10 teams to come forward and meet all the criteria.
“Our patron William Duma will be at the back to see that the finals wind down properly but we have to make sure our affairs are in order,” Yane said.
“Despite the election the league was still functioning well and that is why finals will begin next month.”
He said it was vital each club completed their registration and other requirements with only two rounds left in the regular season, otherwise it would place the play-offs in jeopardy.
“Clubs are late to meet their normal criteria and this might affect the finals.”
Yane said there are preparing for the highlands zone trails in order to send in a team to compete.
“Gomis league has so far developed many young and good players who are now representing each centers and the country,” Yane said.
He said this league is also a major league in the province and called on the teams to speed up so that they can be included in the final.
“We have to make the final become a success and everyone must work together and contribute so that things can work well,” Yane said.
He said Gomis league has met the PNGRFL requirements and this is good news for the league.
He said many youths are finding themselves good life and that is through rugby league.
Yane added that Gomis league has vision to move a step ahead to promote young players who can become the best rugby league players in the country.
