The Australian Prime Minister’s XIII have come away with victory over a spirited PNG Kumuls side in what was regarded as a scrappy affair.

The PM’s XIII scored 6 tries to the Kumuls 3 as a packed crowd watched the game at Lloyd Packer Stadium in Port Moresby as the final score ended up being 30-18.

It was the Kumuls who came out the stronger side showing their determination and exuberance in attack as they looked threatening in the first half.

The Kumuls went into the break 4-0 up, but lost control and simply couldn’t compete with a resurgent PM XIII’s side.

The game was played in quite hot conditions, and the weather, along with the aggressive style of play adopted by the Kumuls restriced the PM XIII’s side to just 30 points.

The now annual clash between two of the nations in the Four Nations Tournament, was simply a teaser of the breath-taking football that we’re about to witness in the tournament.

Parramatta’s Ben Smith, South Sydney halfback Chris Sandow and North Queensland Cowboys’ Willie Tonga were among the try scorers for the Kangaroos.
