The Trophy was brought to the brew kettle yesterday by the Oil Search Rugby League World Cup Tour Team.
Managing Director of SP Brewery, Stan Joyce, acknowledged the Rugby League World Cup 2017 committee led by CEO Andrew Hill and Oil Search for sharing the World Cup with PNG.
“With such a formidable team, I have no doubt PNG will host the best rugby matches come October at the National Football Stadium,” said Joyce.
He added that as a platinum sponsor to this year’s World Cup, SP was excited about bringing the pinnacle of rugby events to PNG.
Yesterday’s event was also the opportunity to launch the SP Lager commemorative can celebrating the Rugby League World Cup 2017.
“This will be available across PNG in the coming weeks,” said Joyce.
