Papua New Guinea Kumuls 2010 Four Nations Tour

Stanley Gene is one of the highly regarded rugby league player here in Britain and recently has been made the coach of the Papua New Guinea Kumuls. Having watched the PNG Kumuls under him in the opening match against the Australian Kangaroos (Sunday 24 October, 2010; Paramatta Stadium in Australia), I am confident that if the Kumuls can avoid unnecessary mistakes, they can make an impact in the rugby league world and will definitely be in good contention for the world cup.
The Kumuls were tough and for the full 80 minutes they played a very hard defensive game against the Kangaroos. I must say it was sloppy mistakes that costed them the game against Australia (42-0) but I am surprised at the stamina the Kumuls had in wearing out the Australian Kangaroos by their hard tackles.

The Kumuls next game in New Zealand against the New Zealand Kiwis will be an interesting game to watch (Saturday 30 October, 2010)... will keep you posted what I think later.
