RUGBY league followers in Rigo, Central province, have supported their member, Vice Minister for Mining Ano Pala’s move to have a franchise in the semi-professional rugby league challenge, the bemobile Cup this season.
Giroa Roosters coach Goerge Gwaibo, Bigai Brothers patron Gabia Buro and other club presidents have supported the move and are willing to work with the MP to see the team enter the semi-professional competition.
The entry of Rigo Roosters for this season, scheduled for April will see talents from Rigo and Central province putting on show their skills at the national level.
Gwaibo said they wanted to host the bemobile Cup matches at the Kwikila rugby league grounds which was expected to attract a lot of followers in the district turning up in huge numbers to see their heroes playing in front of them.
The franchise side have already handed in their submission to the bemobile Cup board for their perusal, with Pala injecting K200,000 to support the franchise.
However, they are awaiting a green light from the board and if all goes well, an entry ticket to the Rigo Roosters would be a dream come true for the people of Rigo and Central province.
Meanwhile, the club presidents competing in the 3-Suns Rigo League competition have been urged to attend the 2009 annual general meeting (AGM) at Salvation Army headquarters at Kwikila station tomorrow.
