Menzie Yere attended a reception at Buckingham Palace

The strong-running centre received royal recognition for his work with the Kits2Kids Menzie Yere Foundation which has so far sent around 50 tonnes of rugby boots and kit to Papua New Guinea to enable local children to participate in the sport.

Matthew Natusch, general manager of the Kumuls, said: "The whole Papua New Guinea World Cup squad are proud that Menzie's outstanding work has received royal recognition.

"His support for the development of sporting opportunities for all in Papua New Guinea has made a real difference to many people and he is held in the highest regard by not just the sporting community but the general public."
