Southern Highlands father flown to Port Moresby to watch son play in first rugby league grand final

A father of one of the players of Kroton Hela Wigmen travelled all the way from his Southern Highlands village to Port Moresby just to watch his son play in his first major rugby league grand final- 2019 Digicel Cup Competition.
Michael Raita Rame from Kepik in Ialibu was able to travel to Port Moresby thanks to his community members who contributed to meet his airfare.
His son Nanduka Rame will play on the wing against the Lae Snax Tigers.
“The Kepik Karanas community has paid his ticket and sent him here to give me their blessings from the village as well as give me moral support on my big day on Sunday,” explained Nanduka.
“After the game I will pay for his return ticket and send him home.” An excited Michael Raita Rame said that he is excited to finally see his son in action live and not just on the screen.
“I am really excited to watch his grand final live, all the time I stayed at home and watched him play on TV but now I will watch him play live in the grand final on (tomorrow) Sunday.”
Nanduka is the third among eight siblings of three boys and five girls.
