The long-running dispute over the leadership of the Papua New Guinea rugby league federation is still somewhat in the air.

On Friday, a court judge ruled that the current interim committee, led by John Numapo, should remain at the helm until a new administration is elected.

The federation's former deputy chairman, Bryan Kramer, had disputed the legitimacy of the interim administration, believing that he was elected chairman at a meeting in December of last year.

However the judge ruled that meeting to be invalid and ordered that a new AGM be called to elect a permanent administration.
