PNGRFL unaware of Gary Lo situation

Papua New Guinea Rugby Football League (PNGRFL)  Chairman Sandis Tsaka said the PNGRFL is yet to be formally advised on Gary Lo's situation by his Castleford Tigers club, his manager or the RLF, therefore he is unable to confirm anything to do with Lo’s departure from the club.

“We are informed that Gary has returned to PNG but have not been made aware of the circumstances surrounding his departure from England,” Tsaka said.

He said the PNGRFL is enquiring into this with the Rugby League Federation (RFL) and his club as we are concerned about the implications for the future for PNG Rugby League players’ pathways to UK clubs.

The Chairman said Gary Lo will not be participating in any PNGRFL sanctioned competitions or programs until the circumstances surrounding his departure from England is confirmed and formal advice from the RFL and his club in England is received.

“We will advise once we have established more facts on the matter,” Tsaka said.

According to UK Media, Castelford Tigers  released winger Garry Lo at the request of his “representative” so he can focus on a “personal matter”.

The Papua New Guinea international, who has made just one appearance for the club – in their defeat at Wigan, has requested his release from the Super League side with immediate effect.
In a short statement issued this morning, the Tigers confirmed they had agreed to release the player to “allow him to focus on a personal matter’.

The statement read: “Today the club received a request from Garry Lo’s representative to be released from his contract with the club to allow him to focus on a personal matter. “The club has agreed to this.

There will be no further comment from the club.”
