PORT MORESBY - PNG Men’s snooker competition is expected to attract more players from the other centers to vie against Defending champion, Djorne Fong.
Djorne will be out to defend his sixth consecutive title.
Players are expected to come in from Alotau, Lae, Kokopo, Kavieng, Lihir and the host Port Moresby.
