And in addition to the above post, further news from The National reveals that Australian football is making an impact amongst youths in the remote Western Highlands village of Balk in PNG.

A club named Kera Doa has been registered with AFL-PNG, lead by Cletus Topa, Joseph Paul and Rev. Moses Kar. The club's aim is to engage young people through 'Rules football'.

“Through the AFL’s development programme these youths are restricted from unacceptable behaviour and other forms of drugs, alcohol and criminal activities,” said Topa.

Kera Doa will be sending an Under 18 and a senior team to the PNG National AFL Championships in Lae in September this year.
