The National, Wednesday 5th June 2013


IT’S State of Origin fever at the Grand Papua tonight for PNG Youthlink fundraiser as former Origin stars, Scott Hill (NSW Blues) and Matt Rogers (Qld) are in town to help raise money for the PNG Youthlink programme.

PNG Youthlink director Steven Kilage who was at the airport to welcome the tourist said the former Melbourne Storm five-eighth Hill has been the great ambassador for PNG Youthlink.

The programme is a non-government organisation supporting and promoting work of the youth in the country.

Both former Australian Kangaroos are no stranger to PNG. 

Hill is a regular visitor by now while Rogers was part of the Kangaroo teams that played the PNG Kumuls in Port Moresby in early 2000s before moving to rugby union.

Kilage said the tables are going for K5,000 each. There are only three tables left before the function tonight. 

Any corporate houses wishing to support the work of PNG YouthLink, should immediately contact him on 72280528.

There will be an opportunity to meet Hill and Rogers one-on-one during the function at Illusion Club,Downtown.
