Featherstone have made another astute signing, bringing in a third player from Papau New Guinea Hunters in Thompson Teteh. They have already signed PNG star half backs in brothers Watson Boas and Ase Boas. Perhaps they will be known as Featherstone New Guinea next year.

Teteh was part of PNG’s World Cup squad who crushed Wales 50-6 and the USA 64-0 before losing to an NRL star studded England team 36-6.

England Knights should be in for some really tough contests when they travel to PNG in a few weeks time, with PNG only losing 34-16 in a competitive game with Australia today. The passionate 14k+ crowd let their emotions run a bit too high and invaded the pitch at one point.

It will be a massive shame if the PNG v England Knights fixtures are not picked up by a broadcaster.

Good signing for Fev, and agree, Knights will be in for a tough time.
However, for accuracy, the Australian team they played against today was the Prime Ministers 13 - this included a number of reserve graders/juniors and a number of players who'll get nowhere near the full Aus team.

For accuracy the Australia side had the following who are certainly not reserve graders or juniors. Daly Cherry-Evans, David Klemmer, Ben Hunt, Jordan McLean, Tyson Frizell, Tyrone Peachey, Jake Trbojevic, Aaron Woods, Reagan Campbell-Gillard, Matt Prior, Chad Townsend.

What's that all about? What is wrong with my post?

The thread is not only about Fev, but strength of PNG, and their performance against an Australian team today- I was just adding context????

PNG Hunters are victims of their own success.
They didn't make the Qld cup finals this year because they lost too many players after winning last year and doing so well in the WC, and this year they are losing even more players.
The Boas brothers will be very hard to replace.
On the plus side, they were able to blood a heap of young players this year, and the improvement over the season of these young guys was very impressive.
Now they are based in the only real city in PNG and have good quality facilities they are able to develop players much quicker. Every professional side will have PNG players within a few years I think.

I agree Superted....probably just a mistake by DG.

Take it to PM now guys, if you’re thus inclined, please.

Now back on topic...

can we rename this thread to 'a pointless argument between 2 people which will never be won'. i was rather hoping to find out a bit more about the PNG up and coming players, any been recruited by nrl clubs for next season?






The referee's indecision is final

No recruits this year to date. A number of the Hunters who were picked up by NRL sides in 2017 have since been released. The "work ethic" has been called into question as an elite RL player needs to eat, think and train RL 24/7 and this isn't how islanders are wired.....PNG players will do well in the QLD/NSW cup, but aren't equipped for the step up to top flight Rugby.

On your first point, I notice that you flock to the defense of the troll known (today) as Sir Kev...are you perchance related?






JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:
