PNG Maleos

PNG Maleos impress

In their first match in the Battle of the Sexes, the Maleos went down to the All Stars 30-29.

The PNG Maleos came close to causing an upset in their second match losing by just four points to the PNG Pepes with a 48-44 score line.

"In the first match, the All Stars were made up expatriates or ex Pepes players.

"I was a bit disappointed that they beat us, but it was still a good match.

"The whole idea for me from today from a development point of view was to see where we need to move, what direction we need to go and where we need to focus on."


Netball match to promote hand washing

The match played at the Rita Flynn courts yesterday was attended by Australian Governor-General, Sir Peter Cosgrove.

The main aim of the partnership is to improve grassroots sports participation; to improve hygiene behaviours alongside access to safe water and sanitation; and the participation and leadership of women and girls.

President, Julienne Leka Maliaki said Netball PNG was grateful for the opportunity to promote this partnership which is fundamental to rural communities.
