The Aussies are here

The Australian PM's XIII and Australian Jillaroos are here in Port Moresby.

As expected, the two teams arrived to a rousing welcome from hundreds of rugby league fanatics.

The scorching sun did nothing to stop men, women and children who swarmed in as early as 11:30am to the Jackson’s International Airport.

The PM's XIII and Jillaroos were greeted at the ceremonial car park by a dancing group from Vabukori village.

After 1:30pm, the teams were then escorted by the PNG Rugby Football League and the PNG National Rugby League onto their buses.

Driving out the gate under heavy police escort, the teams were whisked away, but not before hundreds of excited fans ran onto the road screaming and cheering them on.

The PM's XIII, Jillaroos, NGCB PNG PM'S XIII and Oil Search PNG Orchids will have a press conference this afternoon at the Stanley Hotel.
