GULF province is to make a bid to enter a team in the country’s semi-professional rugby league competition, the bemobile Cup, next year.
Gulf Governor Havila Kavo has put out a call to all former PNG Kumuls from the province and ex-senior players of the code throughout the country who hail from the province to come and work together to realise this goal.

Rangers Paid Handsomely

The Mast Mark City Rangers are the highly paid players in the current bemobile cup competion. It is purported, players are paid K400 per match plus bonuses for top perfomers. When you equate that to a fortnightly wage, it adds to K800 or more. This is more than what many avarage working Papua New Guineans are earning.

This goes to show how passionate an individual like Mr. Kelly Aiyok (Rangers Franchise owner), is in promoting rugby league by providing lucrative offers for players. In return, he expects the players to perform or be axed. In that way, he ensures, players put in their required effort and aim to excel.

Mr. Aiyok has also been tremendous in supporting Port Moresby's Suburban Rugby League (second tier competition) and the Masta Mark Trials which featured the Rangers, Vipers and Aroma Coast with Cash Sponsorhip. It's wonderful how one can dig deep into his own pocket to develop our beloved game.

Good on you Mr. Aiyok. If only, all other franchise owners and corporations are like minded, then I guess, we would develop rugby league by folds.

Emanuel Uki joins Bemobilecup blog Team

Awesome, awesome, awesome.....Guess what, the Masta Mark City Rangers fullback Emanuel Uki has expressed interest to be part of the blog team. He was so full of praises after visiting the site. He was grateful that at least someone has finally taken the initative to set up such a blog to expose our game to the global rugby league community on the web.

Mr. Uki will now directly feed this blog with first hand information on how the Rangers fare in all their games. I hope to have players from other franchises follow suit and have their say.

I believe this will create an environment where supporters can get to express their views and concerns to players and their teams.

In my efforts to do a comprehensive coverage of all games played around the country, I managed to enlist few volunteers who are willing to assist by providing content such as match reports, videos and pictures for matches played in other centers.
