Papua New Guinea Rugby Football Union (PNGRFU)

Invest In Rugby: Parkop

Parkop said the sport has the potential to grow in the country and there for must be supported or invested in.

He said: “Not much of an input or support has been given to rugby union in the past years but things need to be changed. It is not about the individuals but rather about young man and women that play and represent the country, because they are the once affected the most.”

Parkop said rugby union is not just an international game but also an Olympic sport and has the potential to give back in terms of return on investment, tourism and other sporting events.
