Rugby Union PNG Rugby Football Union executives will meet today to address a way forward for the game. PNGRFU training and education coordinator Sailosi Druma said the meeting is important for the future and return of the competition in the country. Druma said the meeting will also discuss the return to sports protocols and to see it endorsed by the boards to ensure the restart of the competition. “We will meet tomorrow (Thursday) to discuss the return of sports protocols,” Druma told the Post-Courier yesterday. “The meeting will oversee when the competition will resume and how it will be played and managed for the remaining time,” he said. “Return of sport protocols had already been made and PNGRFU Ian Liveras’ administration is aware of that and the meeting is to see it takes effect for the resumption of games.” Druma said the protocols and new normal measures had been drafted by Dr Kapua Kapua and it will be up to the boards to endorse. He said they are taking similar procedures like other sports organizations at these trying times to find a way forward for their competitions to resume. “It’s just like what PNGRFL did to see Digicel Cup competition resume and they have produced their return to sports protocols. “We, at the PNGRFU, also set out the similar return of sports protocols and guidelines for the boards for their endorsement to ensure a healthy and safer return to rugby union this season. “The results of when the game resumes and how the protocols will be observed will be sent out to all the unions later,” Druma said. read more
