Rimbu brushes aside critics

The SP PNG Hunters’ rake and PNG LNG Kumuls’ debutant, Judah Rimbu responded to the online critics about him, stating that he doesn’t mind them and remains focused on his footy.

The debutant stated that criticism is just part of life and he embraced those critics with both hands to improve his game.

“Critics are all part of life and we have to go through criticism to come back better. I have come a long way and I don’t mind critics. I like to remain focused on my footy and I’m looking forward to the game on Sunday,” Rimbu confidently responded to unwanted criticisms online.

The 22-year-old from Southern Highlands made his debut in the semi-professional competition (Digicel Cup) in 2020 when he joined the Kroton Hela Wigmen. He went on to join the SP PNG Hunters in 2021 and has been with them since. The utility player has made 46 career appearances, scoring five tries in the 2023 season.

Rimbu also impressed his fellow debutant and NRL veteran, Jack De Berlin.

“Judah has been impressive. The young hooker is lightning fast and he has got good skills. He is as tough as nails. I’m pretty happy I’m playing along with him,” De Berlin said.

Furthermore, Rimbu acknowledged some of his mistakes in the PM’s XIII match and plans to improve on them and work well with his team.

The PNG LNG Kumuls will take on the Cook Islands on Sunday, 15th October at the National Football Stadium at 3 p.m.
