The Eastern Highlands Super 8 Rugby League Tournament is an initiative of Kainantu MP and Minister for Mining, Johnson Tuke.
Thaiday will officiate at the launching of the Super 8’s competition.
The Brisbane Broncos veteran said: “I just want to hopefully give them a few words of advice about education, about being healthy, about being good people within the community, but also enjoying sport, I think that’s a huge factor,” said Thaiday.
“I think it’s a fantastic program.”
