THE Australian and New Zealand Defence
Forces have beaten the Royal Papua New Guinea
Constabulary on their home turf after a 2-1 touch
football win in Port Moresby.
The police were waiting to board an Australian
Hercules flight to Mt Hagen when the football
was produced and the challenge put out to the
PNG police, who could not refuse.
Team Anzac Captain WO1 Chris Jackson won
the toss but the visitors jumped to the front a cou-
ple of minutes later with a nice try to Pte Liam
The away team crossed again a couple of
minutes later when task force deputy commander
New Zealand Lt-Col David DeKoning evaded a
lazy touch and showed a clean pair of heels.
The locals responded with a dummy run and a
sharp inside ball to put Diatau Alu into the open
and over to score on the stroke of halftime.
Both teams pressed in a tense second half,
with the Anzacs finding plenty of room up the
middle while the police spread the ball around
looking for gaps.
PNG police team captain Humphrey Begada
said his boys had a good time playing against the
Australian and NZ contingent.
"This match was the first of its kind and we
will be looking for a rematch when we come
back," he said.
WO1 Jackson said the spontaneous event was
a lot of fun, but he found the conditions a little
"It was really hot out there and I don't think
I would have liked it to go any longer; we were
wilting a little in the heat," he said.

Australian and New Zealand forces support elections in Papua New Guinea
Capt Bill Heck
THE Australian and New Zealand
Defence Forces are supporting
elections in Papua New Guinea
(PNG), providing air-lift capabil-
ity to remote areas.
ADF support is an element of
a wider Australian assistance pro-
gram focused on helping authori-
ties conduct a safe and fair national
election through June and July.
The support mission, based on
Combined Joint Task Force 630,
provides specialist support capa-
bilities, particularly helicopters and
CJTF 630 Commander Col
Andrew MacNab said at the
peak of the commitment about
250 Australian and New Zealand
Defence personnel would be
"Australian and New Zealand
Defence Force aircraft will carry
electoral officials, monitors and
observers during the operation and
we will also assist with pre-posi-
tioning of PNG security person-
nel prior to the poll," Col MacNab
As the job got under way on
May 31, two Australian Hercules
air lifted more than 320 PNG
Defence Force personnel to Wewak
and Lae from Port Moresby in
preparation of the soldiers' move
into the highlands.
PNG Election Task Force
Commander Lt-Col Ezekia Wenzel
said he was happy to be deploying
with his men to support the people
of the highlands region.
"We want to ensure a safe and
secure election where people can
make their democratic choice free-
ly, without intimidation and with-
out fear," Lt-Col Wenzel said.
Col MacNab said the Australian
and New Zealand support provided
specialist capabilities not readily
available in PNG.
"This is an important national
event for PNG and we are provid-
ing air and logistic support in a
challenging environment to remote
communities in rugged terrain,"
"Personnel from the Papua
New Guinea Defence Force and
the Royal Papua New Guinea
Constabulary are responsible for
the security of the elections."
The elections are scheduled to
be held between June 23 and July
6, with the polling stations moving
around the country.

for transport from Port Moresby to Madang to provide security for the coming national elections.
