MADANG Madgauns crowned kings

MADANG Madgauns were crowned the kings of Trans Highway Sevens challenge held in Lae last weekend.

A surprised package of the tournament, Madgauns put up a weekend of sterling performance to the Flying Fox land.

Madgauns led by former international and veteran Paul PJ Joseph had too much class from their opponents from the Oil Palm land who have been dorminant in the sevens challenge.

Madgaun now prepares for the coming Black Orchid sevens to be staged in Buka which is set to be another thrilling weekend of fast flowing football competition.

The Papua New Guinea Rugby Football Union has embarked on more exposure on national and international level as a stepping stone in improving the code in the country.

The PNG team is currently preparing for the coming New Zealand Sevens challenge in Wellington next month.
