A sport like rugby league is the way to do this,” said Andrew.“We want to give the youths hope for the future, because if they can’t succeed in school, they can turn to turn to sports and be successful there.“We want to turn these boys into leaders in their communities.”Andrew said the Port Moresby City Punishers will get to wear their new uniforms when they take part in this weekend’s Bang 36 rugby league nines tournament in Port Moresby.“We are also eyeing the NGI Super 9s and other competitions like the Coca-Cola Ipatas Cup.“These boys have a lot of potential and I believe they can play for the Hunters and the Kumuls one day,” he said.“We don’t expect anything back from these boys, we do this because we want to help.”last_img
