The first games have been played and already 2 teams are up against it. In the A group, NZ def Tonga 34-14 still to come, Aus v NZ Tonga v Aus In the B group, Samoa def PNG 24-6 still to come Fiji v Samoa PNG v Fiji PNG will find promotion into A tough from here, needing to not only beat a very strong Fiji but also hope Fiji beat Samoa by a decent margin. Samoa are in the box seat with the first up win but Fiji will rate their chances of going 2/2 after easily dispatching Lebanon in the standalone test. Tonga are lucky demotion isn't on the cards in the A group with Australia declining to participate next year. An unlikely win v Australia could see them take the trophy but its more likely they'll finish bottom after a big loss. NZ will be hoping to wrap it up with a second-in-a-row win against Australia in October. Taking the trophy here could provide a big boost to their Lions tour crowds. Who do you hope gets promoted and why? PNG have the strongest domestic Rugby League scene of the B-teams, Fiji have been the 4th strongest nation for over a decade and arguably already deserve to be there, and Samoa would give us some huge clashes v Tonga and NZ. But who do you think will be promoted? And who will win the major trophy?
