Why aren’t many PNG rugby league players being recruited by NRL clubs just like other Pacific island nations of Fiji, Tonga, Samoa and New Zealand? Because our players do not have the weight and height advantage.
NRL club management considers factors as weight and height among other things.
They consider players with weight to create havoc or make inroads into opposition territory for yards gain, try assist or for easy try. They consider for easy fend off tactic.
Fijians, Tongans, Samoans and Maoris have the physique height and weight is what NRL clubs much interested in.
The bottom line is, we were created by the Creator to be in this size for as long as we live so we can’t do much to rectify something that nature had put in place.
