On the 16th of September 1975, a ceremony is held in Port Moresby – Papua New Guinea. Diplomats from Australia and the United Nations have gathered to witness the birth of a new Nation. As with any new born, Papua New Guinea has its high points and its low moments.
But as the diplomats flew out of Port Moresby in their jet airliners, another bird was just arriving.
For the game of Rugby League, this bird was paradise !
