NCD School League into finals

The National Capital District (NCD) School Rugby League competition is heading into its finals after ten weekends of regular rounds. The competition has kicked off its playoffs over the weekend, with the grand final expected to be staged in two weeks’ time.

Five divisions (both boys & girls) are competing in the finals. The age categories of the students ranged from under 15-19 in different divisions.

The annual school competition commenced in April this year and has been played every weekend at the Sir John Guise Stadium.

Over a thousand students from various primary and secondary schools in NCD are participating in the competition. The players are from the three electorates, namely: Moresby South, North-East and North-West.

Motu Koita schools were also taken into consideration, but they did not show interest to participate in the competition. However, Pari was the only Motu Koita school to join the competition.

NCD School Rugby League President, Arnold Gende was pleased with the progress of the competition so far and anticipated to host the decider in the first week of July.

“Kids are enjoying themselves; teachers are enjoying themselves. I am happy and look forward to ending the competition in two weeks’ time,” President Gende said.

Mr. Gende expressed his appreciation to the NCD Governor Honorable Powes Parkop, PNGRFL CEO Stanley Hondina, and Chairman Sandis Tsaka, including other organisations and individuals for their support. He also urged the business houses to come on board and support the competition.
