Barras roll up their sleeves for health

The Hebou Barramundi’s and Cricket PNG took a shot in the arm this month to ensure all team members keep swinging the bat and taking those classic catches.

The ‘Better Health’ support from PMGH was to ensure the whole of the squad including management at Cricket PNG were covered for Tetanus.

This is a serious disease that many people neglect to think about as part of their overall health regime. The Cricket PNG CEO, Mr. Greg Campbell does not take any risks when it comes to the health of his team and management.
