RUGBY BY SIMON KESLEP ICTSI South Pacific PNG Palais are maintaining their fitness by consistently running and maintaining their body weights. They are doing this in isolation training programs says Coach Paul Tietjens. The Tietjens coached side were one of the national teams affected by the effects of Coronavirus (Covid-19) which saw some global sports competitions put on hold while others suspended. He said the team was supposed to play a friendly trial against Australia but unfortunately this did not eventuate. According to Tietjens, Palais were preparing for the World Series Qualifier and their preparations include having some game time in Australia. Players who have maintained consistency in game combinations at the top representative level include Kymlie Rapilla, Lynette Kwarula, Alice Alois, Tanya Lavai, Fatima Rama, Cathy Puro and Chelsea Garesa. While those stepping back into the spotlight for representative duties include Yolanda Gittins, Gemma Schnaubelt and Marlugu Dixon. “Unfortunately it was disappointing for us but then again the girls understood it was all about the health and safety of the team with regards to Coronavirus. We plan for a training camp in Port Moresby and currently the girls were issued isolation training programs,” said Coach Tietjens. These training programs include running, fitness and body weight purposely to maintain consistency. Tietjens said his advice to all the players is to keep self motivation and positive mindset despite not having enough game time. Following his father’s coaching footsteps, Tietjens young coaching career has also come into experiencing a new norm of reaching out with his players using technology to communicate and keep track of players training. “We are fortunate to do things on line, we know it’s a bit challenging but we just have to go with it and hope things get back to normal. Stay motivated, stay discipline and complete training sessions,” said Tietjens. Coach Tietjens also said there is nothing official as yet from Oceania Rugby or the international rugby as to when international representative tournaments kicks off.
