West Papua Warriors to play officially sanctioned international match

by

The rugby league team set up in PNG to promote the West Papuan Freedom Movement, the West Papua Warriors, are going international with a match lined up against the Philippines Tamaraws in the New Year.

The game will be played in Brisbane on January 16th and organisers say it will mark the first time that West Papua is represented on the international sporting stage.

The contest has been officially sanctioned by the Rugby League International Federation, and Warriors’ captain Tala Kami says that was a massive surprise for the team.
