Help with 1983 and 1991 South Pacific Games results

Postby antlat » Sat, 17 Mar 2018, 06:31

Hi everyone,

Does anyone have information and/or results for the 1983 South Pacific Games in Apia and 1991 South Pacific Games in Port Moresby??

The only information I have found is on wikipedia and http://www.rugbyarchive.net/Pagine/Stag ... gione=1983.

Was hoping to fill in the gaps.

Thanks
Anthony

The results on that site are quite old - I've checked first hand sources (newspapers of the time), so the list I have provided above is the most up to date and complete available.
