RLWC 2017

Team Welsh arrives

The Welshmen braced our shores ahead of Saturday’s showdown against the home side.

Arriving to a warm traditional welcome, the Wales team all in red looked cool, calm and collected.

Bracing the Port Moresby heat, these Welshmen have come with only one agenda and that is to win their first RLWC match against a strong PNG Kumuls outfit.

The best part about the Wales team is that some familiar faces from the Intrust Super Cup competition and NRL feeder clubs will face their PNG Hunters opposition once more.
