Sport: League coach hopes PNG AGM will elect right people

10:15 am on 8 November 2011

The Papua New Guinea rugby league coach Adrian Lam hopes this month's annual general meeting will see the right people elected to lead the sport.

The Kumuls put a difficult week behind them, outclassing Fiji 26-nil in Port Moresby on Sunday to claim series honours.

Lam previously coached the Kumuls for five years before resigning last year amidst a period of infighting over the leadership of the code, before returning in September.

The PNG Rugby Football League is due to elect a permanent chairman and board at their AGM later this month and Lam hopes the right people are included in the new administration.

"Fingers crossed that we get the right people in there that can progress our sport forward with rugby league in this country because it is a national sport. I'd love to stay involved, I've dedicated my life to rugby league in Papua New Guinea and I'm still there to help out in the future and fingers crossed we get the right people in there in a month's time."
