PAPUA New Guinea Rugby Football League chief executive officer Bob Cutmore has made clarifications regarding the SP Hunters and Digicel Cup being registered with their respective local leagues.
Cutmore, pictured, said any players in the Hunters and Papua New Guinea National Rugby League’s Digicel Cup should be registered with their local league to be eligible for national duty such as the Kumuls and Prime Minister’s XIII.
Cutmore said players needed to pay a K50 registration fee and be part of a local league which were under the Confederations — Southern, Northern, Highlands and New Guinea Islands. He said the onus was on the PNGNRL, who needed to submit their lists of registered players and what local leagues they were from.
Cutmore said the rule only extended to domestic competitions as well as the Hunters and did not affect overseas-based players.
