Normal, Sports


THE inaugural Port Moresby Suburban Rugby Football League (POMSRFL) grand final tomorrow at Kone Tigers Oval received a  boost of K15,000 from SP Brewery.
SP’s Noel Kamong presented the cheque to POMSRFL president Billy Yaki yesterday and said the competition was bringing the game to the masses in NCD.
Kamong said SP Brewery was involved with a number of leagues such as Port Moresby, Lae and Goroka, and now had extended their support to the POMSRFL.
He said SP Brewery  believed that by supporting POMSRFL, it would bring the game to the grassroots.
Yaki, when accepting the cheque, thanked SP Brewery for the kind gesture.
He said it was difficult without the sponsors but thanked NCD Governor Powes Parkop and his management for taking the lead by providing some assistance in kind to get the competition moving.
He said the SP Brewery sponsorship would  go a long way in promoting the code in the suburbs.
The sponsorship money would go towards the prize money for POMSRFL grand final, women’s volleyball and soccer.
The POMSRFL chief said the two finalists Kone Storms, and Tatana Island Stones were worthy contenders for the inaugural final.
Yaki, who used the Highlands style of running competition, also bought a cow as part of the first prize to go along with K3,000 to the winning team.
