2019 Digicel Cup

Successful kick-off

Twelve teams played in last weekend’s kick off games across the nation in Port Moresby, Lae, Kimbe, Mount Hagen and Mendi – all vying for the championship title.

Digicel PNG Senior Vice President Lorna McPherson said: “Rugby league is not just a sport, it’s a way of life for many Papua New Guineans who follow the game with great passion.

“Digicel Cup competition gives fans the opportunity to access and watch high level rugby games and experience the excitement of all games plus support their teams.

Four bids for 2019 Digicel Cup

PNGNRLC Manager, Stanley Hondina, says as of the deadline on October 26th, 2018, only four bids had been submitted.

The bids include:

  • Central Dabari
  • Kimbe Cutters
  • Hagen Eagles
  • Kera Doa (also from Mt Hagen)

Hondina said the PNGNRLC Board has yet to set a date to meet and deliberate on the bids.

However, the 2019 Digicel Cup Competition will be announced before the end of November with the successful bids.

Hondina previously said two possible spots could be open for the 2019 competition.
