BSP Support PNG Palais 7’s Team

Date: Wednesday 18th October, 2017

The PNG Palais Rugby Union Seven's Team were assisted by Bank South Pacific (BSP) in providing them with Visa Debit Cards to give them access to their funds when they travel for their international competition in Fiji starting on the 10th November to 12th November, 2017.

A 15 women squad will be selected to travel to Fiji on 5th November 2017 and will be competing in Pool A with the likes of New Zealand, Cook Islands and Tahiti. The ladies have a good chance of finishing the tournament in fourth place, under Head Coach John Larry.

The Bank was also pleased to give the team sports bags, caps and water bottles for their travel.

PNG Palais Team Manageress, Olive Kapigeno received the merchandise on behalf of the Team and thanked BSP for the sponsorship saying, "We are very happy to have corporate entities like BSP supporting women in sport."

"The gesture itself gives the Palais a sense of recognition for our achievements in the past and is a boost for the upcoming Oceania Cup 2017." She added.

BSP would like to wish the women's seven's team and the officials accompanying them all the best in their preparations to the tournament and we hope the small donation in kind will go a long way in ensuring the team looks uniform and performs well at this sporting event.
