PNGRFL to meet with Northern confed


THE Papua New Guinea Rugby Football League (PNGRFL) is set to hold a consultative meeting with representatives of all rugby league associations and stakeholders of four provinces in the Northern Confederation in Madang on Saturday.
PNGRFL chairman Sandis Tsaka said consultations would be around the establishment of provincial boards, confederation boards and the new governance and management framework for the PNGRFL under the ‘New Ireland Model’ reforms. “The PNGRFL board and management will meet with presidents of 10 affiliate members and women’s and school’s associations who expressed their interest earlier this year in the Northern Confederation,” he said in a statement.
“Also in attendance will be stakeholder representatives from provincial governments, provincial franchises, provincial police commanders, provincial business councils, provincial health authorities and provincial sports councils.” Tsaka said the 10 leagues from each province comprise Madang, Karkar, Walium, Dumpu (Madang), Lae, Bulolo, Ramu, (Morobe), Wewak, Maprik (East Sepik) and Vanimo (West Sepik).
