A Papua New Guinea MP has told parliament that the country’s national rugby league team is ready to “hunt down, kill and eat” Australian players.
Ben Micah, who is the state enterprise minister for Papua New Guinea, told the rest of parliament that after the country hosting the Pacific Games in Port Moresby this month, it shows they are ready to take the world stage by storm – and made the bold prediction that the Kumuls can topple Australia.
“I think Australia and New Zealand can look level at us and not laugh at us anymore,” Mr Micah said via ABC News.
“[In future] I predict, Mr Speaker, our Kumuls are going to beat the Kangaroos.
“We are going to hunt them down, we’ll kill them and we’ll eat them.”
