2018 Pacific Test

Kumuls to be named on June 16

After the Kumuls and PNG Orchids 2018 calendar was made public, Kumuls coach Michael Marum said he will announce the team after the Hunters round 15 clash against the Ipswich Jets down South.

He said players will be selected from the Queensland Intrust Super Cup, NSW Cup and NRL competitions only.

The Kumuls will assemble in Sydney on Monday, June 18, to prepare for the Pacific Test.

2018 Pacific Test Invitational schedule finalised

In what will be the first set of International Matches since the memorable Rugby League World Cup, players and officials from four nations – Tonga, Samoa, Papua New Guinea and Fiji – will gather in Sydney's West following the conclusion of Round 15 of the NRL Telstra Premiership.

Fiji officially replaced Lebanon after the Cedars formally withdrew from participating late last month.
