Hard work paying off for young Simongi

Simongi is one of four student athletes who have returned for a second year at the Education Centre which the Confederation oversees in collaboration with One Tree Hill College in Penrose, Auckland.

“It’s good to see them again,” he said.

“Last year when we went home I wasn’t sure when I would see them again so it’s good to see each other again.”

The 17-year-old made his international debut for PNG in February’s OFC U-17 Championship, helping his country to the semi-finals.
