APEC 2018 – building PNG’s image in the Asia-Pacific region
The Hunters famous win - an inspiration to fight for PNG

An ode to the PNG Hunters

DeterminationMALUM NALU

They came from north of the border
To the colosseum at Suncorp
Modern-day gladiators
Hunters from Papua New Guinea

They carried the hopes and dreams of a nation
Upon their shoulders
So much gloom, doom and despair
A little ray of sunshine was needed

All was lost, it seemed
When in from the cold came Willie Minoga
Like a runaway freight train from Enga
Grounding the ball at the last minute

And for a moment in time
All of Papua New Guinea erupted
A crescendo from the islands to the mountains
As the sons and daughters of this beautiful land arose as one, singing a new song of hope

I remember the commentator saying "Shut the gate! Shut the gate!" when Meninga scored that try.

What a day to remember. I was literally in tears and cheering in front the television at home.

Same team work has to be done in our government system for us to win corruption.

Hope in something bigger
A belief grows

Falcon shot down
Panther is next
Beast NRL, you just wait

The hunt is on!

The win was a super perfect reward for putting up a 75 minutes of solid defence. Congratulations to the Hunters!
