NGCB committed to support rugby league

CEO of the National Gaming Control Board, Imelda Agon, says the NGCB will continue to support rugby league in the country.

The NGCB are the naming rights sponsor of the PNG Prime Minister’s XIII team that will take on the Australian Prime Minister’s XIII next Saturday in Port Moresby.

“The NGCB, on behalf of the government, believes that sports is the way to bring everyone together.”

Agon went on to say that the SP Hunters, against all odds, have done extremely well and are a success story.

“Through us continuing to back the PM’s XIII, we believe one day that PNG will beat Australia.

“People say a lot of negative things but through our give back program, we can make a difference in the lives of young and talented Papua New Guineans who play rugby league.

“We stand behind the PNG Rugby Football League and the country as a whole,” said Agon.

Chairman of the PNGRFL, Sandis Tsaka, thanked the NGCB for their continued support to rugby league in the country.
