David Noifa

Former PNG Kumul great remembered

Noifa, aged 56, died at his Warala village in Banz, Jiwaka Province, on Sunday after a short illness.

PNGRFL Chairman Sandi Tsaka said Noifa debuted as Kumul No.80 as centre against the New Zealand Kiwis in Auckland on October 2, 1983.

“David and fellow Kumul Joe Katsir were named in a Rest of World side that included Mal Meninga and Wally Lewis to play France around that time,” Tsaka added.
