NCD ready to host rugby world cup: Governor

Papua New Guinea is ready to host the Rugby League World Cup 2017 in Port Moresby on Saturday.

This was stated by NCD Governor, Powes Parkop, during a phone event launch on Sunday.

“The city is ready to host the nations coming in to play against the PNG Kumuls.”

A confident Governor Parkop said the PNG Kumuls might possibly make it to the semi-finals if they train and play hard in their matches.

“We are going to deliver a successful event when the matches will be hosted here in the nation’s capital and we look forward to coming here and experiencing rugby matches the PNG way,” he said.

Parkop adds that it will be a milestone for sport in PNG and “we will deliver as expected”.

He urges everyone to make the world cup a success by welcoming the teams that will go up against the PNG Kumuls.
