I think there is a wrong perception outside of PNG that the Hunters were created to solely place PNG players into the NRL. And yes so far Justin Olam has been the only one. And if not for the death of Kato Otio maybe even 2.

And though that was the ultimate goal, it was also an avenue for the PNGRFL to send PNG players out of the country to better themselves else where and anywhere.
We now have PNG players in Australia ,England, France and even the Cook Islands.
There are now QCUP Clubs in Austalia going direct to the Digicel Cup for players.
Same with some Cubs in England and France.

Png hunters have established themselves in the qld cup

in addition to what you’ve said they have proven a png based team can sort out the logistics and safety issues involved for a travelling team

the last team added in the nrl was a member of the qld cup

Perth will likely have to join with a member of the nsw cup

png hunters are proof of concept

You posted about the new development officer roles last year. Hopefully they have filled these and PNG is filling the holes in their pathways

Do Papuans prefer Cook Islands over PNG?

Yes coz Roar articles are the best source of information in this day and age...
Every Roar article is bias BS agenda driven nonsense, written by self proclaimed "experts"
How’s that any different to main stream media these days?

Any Random moron can post on Roar, gotta be a registered moron working for either news ltd or telegraph etc to actually give proper scoops, none of them is worth shit, but atleast the guys in power speak to the registered morons, Roar is fictional bullshìt

Only difference is journos get paid to write sht and roar publishers do it for fun. Beyond that there’s nothing between them.

Not really the guys on Roar don't have anything to go off but opinions, no sources
They could just add
”an unnamed club administrator”
” a player under anonymity”
” a source at the club said”

and be just like real journos lol
