Papua-New Guinea Kumuls now has a very powerful set of backs

Or... It could be that he isn't actually very good! The fact that he ran GB ragged could simply outline how bad they were! It might not actually make him a very good player.

I disagree. The Boas brothers have done well on the international stage more than once in recent years. However Edwin Ipape, Kyle Laybutt,  and Lachlan Lam are very talented alternatives. The real problem for PNG, as I have said, remains its lack of dominating forwards, who could give the competent halves and the brilliant outside backs a chance to shine.

Right.

But he play for Doncaster.

Surely if he was international class, he would at least be signed by a professional club? Even a Wakefield or somebody... He plays against students and the likes of West Wales Raiders every week. How good can he really be?? There are some pretty poor quality player in Super League, yet this guy plays 2 Leagues below!! ?

They are entering a team in the Queensland Cup U`20s next year,was meant to happen this year but for the virus, hopefully this will help them to develop more forwards to go with their exciting backs . Really important to see steady flow of talent coming from these rugby league hotspots.  I been thinking for a while now  that it would almost be worthwhile the NRL help fund an academy up there. It`s a poor country and I`m sure the would appreciate any type of investment.
