Australian PM's XIII

Aussies cruise to 48-8 win in PM’s XIII

Over 13,000 swarmed into the National Football Stadium to watch a near full-strength Kangaroos side take on a PNG outfit, dominated by Digicel Cup players - a David and Goliath battle.

It took over ten minutes for the Australians to cross the line through Trbojevic who crossed for his first.

The 20-minute mark is where the momentum shifted in favour of the home side after a break from five-eighth Jason Missian.

The Aussies are here

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.
