Digicel Cup Rugby League competition

Court recommends mediation for rugby case

The case was referred for mediation after the court dismissed it today, citing no reasonable cause of action was disclosed in the proceeding that was filed by the PNG National Rugby League Inc (PNGNRL Inc).  

Court found that the case was an abuse of court’s process and that PNGNRL Inc.’s claim could not be sustained because it had no legal standing or right to bring such case.

The case was filed by PNGNRL Inc. over the resolution of 26 March 2017, which saw the Digicel Cup competition for 2017 come under the PNG National Rugby League Competition (PNG-NRLC).
