PNGFA named squad for Solomon Islands tour

The lists of players were finalized following a five-day camp at the PNGFA Academy in Lae last week.

The PNG team will take part in two friendly matches against Solomon Islands Under23 team on Thursday (March 26) and Sunday (March 29) at the Lawson Tama Stadium in Honiara.

This will allow for Herbert and his coaching staff to single out players for consideration for the July XV Pacific Games in Port Moresby.

Herbert, a former New Zealand spent a week with the players at the Academy, will get to see for the first time how the players handle match conditions against a team they may face during the games as well.

Assisting Herbert are assistant coaches Milan Miric and Reginald Davani, the team manager is former national coach Wesley Waiwai. The team leaves for Honiara tomorrow.
