The group consisted of Bulldog players, staff, leagues club staff and an ACPE student who would spend the next seven days in PNG heading out to schools, running coaching clinics, building a classroom,and promoting the game of Rugby League in PNG.
The group headed off from Sydney and after a short stop over in Port Moresby, where we were greeted by the locals and the media, the team made their way to Kavieng.
PNG bound with a few of the boys for a week...should be a good experience. #proudtobeabulldog— Steve Turner (@SteveTurner84) October 11, 2013
Kavieng is situated only two degrees south of the Equator on the north-western end of the island of New Ireland and on arrival we were once again greeted by the local residents, before heading to the Kavieng Hotel, where they would spend the night being hosted by the owner of the Hotel, Leo Badcock, who has been a corporate partner of the Bulldogs since 2009.
Unfortunately Zaps bag did not turn up, but these things happen.
The group gathered for a welcome BBQ, where they chattered and mingled with local business owners.
