THE Hohola Rugby League finals, which has been delayed for some time, will be played at the Ipi Park on Sunday.
The league’s acting president and match coordinator Darren Kae confirmed this with The National yesterday.
Kae said the finals were delayed due to lack of funds for awards as affiliation fees had been misused by previous executives.
“This is not the first time that public funds have been misused in the Hohola league and the people responsible were never referred to police for investigation,” Kae said.
He said Moresby North-West MP Michael Malabag had come to the aid of the league with K10,000 and there were other minor sponsors to bring the season to an end. Kae thanked the MP’s project officer Angus Ali for securing the funding.
The youth leader praised the Hohola Flies Rugby League Club for its understanding and input in convincing affiliates that he was not at fault but the previous executives who had been handling the league’s funds.
Kae said to spice up the day, the Masalai Band and DJ Pogie Mahn will entertain the crowd at Ipi Park.
In the final series this Sunday, in the third and fourth playoff in B grade, 29 Dogs will meet Mutrus Brothers and the major premiership battle will be between Texas Melona and Toks Mix Dogs.
In A grade Nopek Wanderers will play Toks Mix Dogs.
The big one will be between Melepin Brothers and Bus Stop Spartenz.
