PNG touch Teams doing well in XIII SP Games
According to Rick Seeto, the Papua New Guinea coach for touch rugby, his team played
their game very well. As a result of that, his team won their first two matches. This success

to their sport. Their first match was with Niue, in which they got
4 points and Niue got 1. Their second match was with Tuvalu in which they got 9 points
and Tuvalu got 4 points. The team expects to win all the games if they
can, but they have much respect for the other countries that they are going to play against.
Ari Peters is the center of the PNG touch rugby team. He said that he is very excited
because of the matches they have won so far. He said that they all try their best to win,
like all of their opponents do, as well.
PNG teams are now staying at Maluafou village, which Peters said that he likes very
