Aussie Rules kicks a goal in PNG

In this special episode of Pacific Pulse, Tania Nugent joins the Australian Football League’s first tour to Papua New Guinea as a team of young indigenous Australian teenagers, the Flying Boomerangs, take on the PNG Under 18 team, the Kapundas.  It’s about promoting Aussie rules football in PNG, where the game is increasingly popular in spite of the dominance of rugby.  But it’s also about much more than football, using the sport as an appealing tool to teach leadership to young men, not just in sport, but for life.
