Was talking to a mate yesterday who worked over there a couple of years back.

Reckons for a bloke compound life is pretty good in Port. Wild but good.

But some of his stories on what a Caucasian women and children would likely experience even visiting Port was ummm, let's just say alarmingly confronting.

I mentioned earlier my mate the pilot , he was single & said they ( the ex pats) had a great social life but any that were married , or who had kids , didn’t last long at all.

I really really cannot see the team being based there , they just won’t attract any players ( other than locals ) or maybe a couple of youngsters who might get double dollars for doing so.

The ONLY way they’ll do it , based in Cairns , 2 home games , with similar security to when the Kangaroos play up there.

Your C section comments are bang on the money. And you just know that the wrong peple will find a way to take their cut of the top.
Personally I would’ve liked to see Fiji get a go. Plenty of untapped talent. The place and people are great. But, the sticking point is the same as mentioned with the corruption. The Fijian government keep brown paper bag makers in business.

I know three blokes that have taken contracts in PNG and moved the family into the compounds. Two managed to finish their two-year contracts, by themselves. The missus and kids couldn’t stand the place, and while their marriages survived, no matter how good the money was, they both said they’d never do it again. The third bloke said the poverty over there was unbelievable. Even though the project they were working on was fenced with razor wire and plenty of security, he said it was common for him to be on the company bus and pass blokes on mopeds holding 3x3 metre pieces of plasterboard from the "secured materials yard".

I don’t really have a stand out candidate for a new license. As for the political side of things. The Chinese will continue to do what ever they like. Too big, massive amounts of money. The CCP have got a billion plus of head-nodders (wether they like it or not).

Well said, we pour lots of aid money into PNG every year, but just don't see any concrete improvements, bit like our first nations peoples here, money's not going to where it should be going to. You described the locals making off with stolen building materials on scooters, just seems so lawless there, good place to make the next Mad Max movie I'd say.
