Upon being given the news this afternoon, the excited 22-year-old from Chimbu and East New Britain Province said he had been dreaming of this day.
“I’m so excited to be part of this champion team. It’s an achievement. It’s a dream-come-true.”
Gotuno, who has represented the country in AFL and also in rugby league for the PNG Prime Minister’s XIII, said he can’t wait to take the field this weekend.
Gotuno replaces Butler Morris.
In other changes made by coach Michael Marum, Stargroth Amean makes a return to the starting line-up at fullback.
