RULES will be tough for teams participating in the southern leg of the Ipatas Cup competition.
Southern leg judiciary chairman Brian Jemejeme confirmed this after a meeting with chief executive officer Timothy Lepa in regards to this year’s competition recently.
Jemejeme warned the clubs that tough penalties would apply if clubs break the rules and by-laws of the competition during the games.
One such rule is then one that stipulates the to clubs on the use of more then allowed number of elite level players in their teams.
Jemejeme said the Ipatas Cup is a PNG Rugby Football League-recognised nationwide competition and they wanted to maintain its credibility.
“The judiciary panel will be tough on teams and a firm hand will prevail over sides trying to take short-cuts,” Jemejeme said.
He said this competition has a long history of producing top talent from the settlement areas with an example being Roger Laka and David Loko, who are current members of the SP-sponsored Papua New Guinea Hunters team.
