Tkatchenko congratulates Tsaka on re-appointment

Minister for Sports Justin Tkatchenko has congratulated Sandis Tsaka, who has been re-appointed chairman for Papua New Guinea Rugby Football League (PNGRFL).

Tsaka was re-appointed at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Lae, during the weekend, for another three-year term.

Tkatchenko highlighted that the successful AGM shows that the management from the board level down to the chief executive officer have the confidence of all the teams’ presidents throughout the country.

Tkatchenko said this shows that rugby league has now taken the lead in good governance and good sport.

He stated that Tsaka was re-elected unopposed and that shows that rugby league is moving forward in a bigger and better way than it’s ever been before.

Tkatchenko also congratulated PNGRFL for proving to have a good administration and management, which clearly showed from the AGM.

“I congratulate Sandis for his re-appointment for another three years working together with the new CEO Reatau Rau and the Board.

“I’m sure that there are more fantastic things to come for rugby league in the country here in PNG,” Tkatchenko said.

Tkatchenko added that this gives a confidence boost to what the Government is doing in trying to get sports back on track.

He said rugby league can now be used as an example of good management and administration and what is needed to get the sport to the next level.

Rugby league now has a career path for future rugby league stars from junior rugby league right up to being a PNG Hunter or a Kumul.
