PNG will thrash Wales. There is a lot of talent in the PNG side.

Very odd side for PNG - 4 hookers in the side - one at lock and two on the bench - and only 1 prop on the bench.

If you look at PNG lined up before any match, every player is about the same height & size, they're a pretty homogenous kind of team, not much of a mixing of races in New Guinea over the years, i reckon you'd could just pick your best players & slot them in anywhere

And I thought John Kear was coaching Wales.

For those that don't know the game is live on Premier Sports and legally online

This is one game I am really looking forward, I can't wait to see/hear the atmosphere and some of the big hits from the PNG squad.

It's difficult to look past a home win, but it should be a great watch

Watch the PNG three quarters, Nene Macdonald (St George Illawarra), Kato Ottio (Canberra), Justin Olam (Melbourne) and Castleford's new signing Garry Lo, cut the Wales defence to ribbons. This game will be a huge victory for PNG.

There was a nice feature on this evening's Wales Today (BBC1 Wales 1830hrs) about the Wales RLnteam arriving in PNG. Interview snippets with Elliot Kear, Iestyn Harris and John Kear, with a special mention (and some Welsh hope) pinned on Regan Grace.

All games in PNG sell out. Even qld cup games get 15k, which is the ground capacity.
They could probably sell 60k tickets to this game if they had a stadium big enough.
