FORMER Kumuls and Stop n Shop Port Moresby Vipers star utility player Richard Kambo has been called into the PNG Prime Minister's XIII squad on the 11th hour after Charlie Simon was ruled out for the PNG versus Australian Prime Minister's XIII annual clash this Saturday at the Sir John Guise Stadium.
Head Coach Stanley Tepend when commenting on Kambo's inclusion said it was a late decision the management had to take to include Kambo due to Simon being ruled out.
"We cannot look anyway else given the fact that Richard Kambo is an experience player as well as he has got everything that qualifies him to replace Simon who is ruled out due to injury," Tepend said.
"Kambo brings with a lot of experience in the team and everyone is happy he has come on board," Tepend said.
Kambo when asked about his late inclusion said, " It has always been an honor playing for his country, whether it be Prime Minister's XIII or Kumuls and I thank head coach Stanley Tepend and the management for giving me this opportunity to play in this game against the Australians."
"I know how it is like to play a side like the Australians and I am happy and will do my best like I always do," Kambo said with a smile on his face.
