PNG LNG Kumuls captain

Mead: We didn’t respect them as we should have

Speaking at the press conference on Sunday, Mead said there were plenty of points on offer but the team didn’t execute their set plays as well as they did in the win over Wales.

“We’ve got guys there who can break the line on their own, but we probably just got too excited and tried to score points like we did against Wales.

“We didn’t really earn the right to play out the back kind of football.”

Mead said against Wales, the Kumuls played tough, were able to hold on to the ball and complete sets.
