    With all the PNG Hunters players unavailable, this will be very, very one sided.

    Does this game have any effect on eligibility for other nations in the World Cup?

    Tedesco, Vaughan, Korisau

    No

    Even if it was counted as an actual Australian match, those players would still have 2nd tier eligiblity unaffected anyway

    That's a pretty good looking team. Shame the kumuls will be playing so under strength.

    Interesting to see tom t picked at centre over the bloke who plays there for his club (although I assume he'll play left side). Makes me think mal has plans in mind for tom in the future.

    NRL Media tweeted that there attempt to Livestream the match had difficulties. I hope this can be addressed before the RLWC.

    Anyway, it's 6 all after 20 minutes!

    From the highlights package on NRL.com looks like Tom Turbo stood out. Was wondering who the halfback was for a while.
