Hailing from Gordon in Port Moresby, Oea joined the SUNS on an international scholarship in 2018 and has enormous potential. He made his NEAFL debut last season that year, drawing praise for his speed, endurance and work ethic. The 2019 NEAFL Rising Star nominee’s journey from Papua New Guinea to the SUNS is an inspiration. He first played football in the Port Moresby youth school competition at 13 where he was spotted by AFL PNG development staff, who then encouraged him to join an AFL PNG Talent ID carnival. Oea caught the eye of SUNS officials when he kicked five goals in a Queensland Under-16 State Championships match in 2017, and became the first PNG player to be selected in the NAB AFL Academy as a result.
