The Papua New Guinea rugby League (PNGRFL) will not name the national coach for the PNG Kumuls as yet.
PNGRFL Chief Executive officer Bob Cutmore revealed to Post Courier online during a press conference held at the National rugby league stadium once known as the Lloyd Robson oval in Port Moresby on Monday this week.
“There are a lot more important things we are working on then the Kumuls coaching position and we are not in turn to name anyone soon till end of the year or so,” Cutmore said.
The Kumuls coach left vacant by Malcolm Meninga, the former Queenslander’s state of Origin coach who turned his back on PNG after signing him on under the Team Kumuls Limited program.
PNGRFL Chairman Sandis Tsaka after various critics of the sudden departure of Meninga confirmed receiving the resignation of Meninga and the position is yet to be filled.
With the World Cup to be jointly co-hosted by Australia, New Zealand, PNG and now Fiji, PNGRFL is yet to announce the position which in recent times has come under a lot of scrutiny.
It is believed some of these outstanding issues will be highlighted and elaborated during the PNGNRFL Annual General Meeting later this year.
