PNG Kumuls beat Fiji Bati 10 – 0; fall to Kangaroos 20 – 4

The Kangaroos can consider themselves very lucky the video referee wasn’t being used in their World Cup warm-up match against Fiji.

They beat PNG Kumlus 20-4 and defeated Fiji Bati 18-0.

The Kangaroos only conceded a try when captain Boyd Cordner dropped the ball on the last tackle gifting PNG consecutive sets.

“It makes it hard, you would think that we’ll have a pretty good side when we play against England”, Meninga said. “We’ll make some decisions over the next week or so”.

“The versatility works for us as well”.

Kumuls coach Michael Marum would have been even more impressed with the defensive effort in keeping the defending Rugby League World Cup champions at bay for most of the match.

It gives Meninga and his coaching staff plenty of thinking to do over the next week while the squad disbands before reassembling in camp on October 22.

The Australian Kangaroos have won the Tri-Nations after beating the Vodafone Fiji Bati and the PNG Kumuls at the ANZ Stadium.

The Kumuls took on the Australian Kangaroos in the final 40 minutes.

Kumuls’ backline made a well-constructed move that resulted in Rhys Martin’s try in the right-hand corner to register their first point of the second Tri-Nations clash.

“We can execute better, there’s no doubt”.
