No PNG at '09 Wellington 7s

The Wellington 7s starts tomorrow in New Zealand's windy capital. After sifting through the NZI Sevens website for the draw it appears Papua New Guinea will not be playing. Included instead in this years draw is the pacific island nation of Niue who qualified for a spot after they won the Oceania Cup in Samoa last year.

PNG has always seemed to put on a disappointing show at the Wellington 7s and the continual inclusion of players who are past their prime is most obvious even to the unseasoned 7s viewer. I'm not sure how selection is made but one thing I am sure of is that we are not short of talent. So how about some new blood and dedicated players be recruited for training and more funds be dedicated to forming a top 7s team.
