Papua New Guinea (PNG) Hunters Lack of Players Welfare Support Exposed by Jokadi Bire - PNG HUNTERS #87.
By Rugby League Romantics | 20 August 2022.
My opinion to png fans. I'm thankful for all my fans who supported me when I played in the hunters jersey. Very much appreciated.
I am Jokadi Bire, Hunter #87 who suffered a heart disease ( Disection Aorta) in Gold Coast hospital on 15th June 2021.
I collapsed in official gym session. I underwent a heart operation that really cost my entire life.
According to doctor reports, we all no that I can't play rugby league again.
I just want to share Some points regarding players welfare. Considering my condition.
1. I lost my rugby league career in a hunters training Jersey at gym session.
2. I lost my memory because of the Operation that will take me 2-3 years to recover which affect my university degree.
3. Living with a mechanical valve with will take another operation in the future.
4. Will be living with a medicine for all life which is not available in public hospital but only in pharmacy at lae and pom.
Considering these conditions, I was asking the hunters management to help but they have no proper plan to help a player who are in the same condition.
In addition, they also deny me on the health insurance cover.
I was persistently asking but the hunters board neglected me.
So my point is are there any plans to help a professional player who suffers a career ending injury in Hunters colours??
Thank you for your time.
Former PNG Hunter
