Goroka Lahanis

Cutters, Lahanis match moved to Kokopo

PNG National Rugby League Competition (PNGNRLC) Manager, Stanley Hondina, said late this afternoon that this is due to the uncertainty of flights in and out of Hoskins.

“This game was originally scheduled to be played in Kimbe this weekend but with the recent turn of events, I advise that this cannot be played in Kimbe and has been moved to Kokopo for a double header this Sunday July 7th at Kalabond oval,” Hondina said.
