People’s love for rugby is beyond expectation

The true passion of rugby league in Papua New Guinea lies in the rural communities.

When there is no proper seats, no proper fencing and field boundaries but the people’s love for the footy goes beyond expectation.

Today, hundreds of people surrounded the Sogeri Rugby League field to witness the A grade Grand final match of the Eda Ranu Koiari Rugby League competition.

Surrounding villagers as far as from the inland Kokoda and the Owen stanley range walked to the station to watch and support their local village teams.

Families and relatives including fans cheer, support and danced with pride and enthusiasm around the field.

Its more exciting and fun filled when players play with passion and pride for their team and villages as all wanted to show each other how good they are in Rugby League.
