Rugby players urged to become someone in life

The National,Tuesday June 28th, 2016

EVERY rugby league player must think positive and aspire to become someone in life.
These were the words of National Gaming Control Board chief executive officer Imelda Agon when presenting K20,000 to Knights Rugby League club in Madang recently.
She said every individual was u specially designed by God for a purpose. Agon gave example former volleyball star-turned rugby league player Kato Otio who signed up with Canberra Riders early this year. She said anyone playing rugby can make it to professional stage like Otio if they believed in themselves.
“You must have this self-confidence in you that you can become somebody,” she said. Agon said she was also an ordinary young woman but her confidence and self-belief had made her become the first female CEO.
She also commended the club for appointing two females, Elly Kale as president and Lorraine Morlin as treasurer.
Kale said the club was not about rugby league but also developing the human person. “We are a team of professional Papua New Guineans who are committed to invest our time and effort by association of rugby league with marginalised youths and young people.
The club has also initiated skills training programmes for the marginalised youths to learn the basics of life.”
