PNG reach Pacific Cup final

PORT MORESBY 25/10/2009 07:30:21 PM Comments (0)

Papua New Guinea raced into the final of the Pacific Cup with a comprehensive 44-14 victory over Tonga in Port Moresby on Sunday.

Led capably by their UK-based contingent of Menzie Yere, Jason Chan and John Wilshere, the Kumuls held a 20-4 halftime lead and racked up another 24 points after the break.

Tonga struggled to hold their defensive line in the Port Moresby heat and were unable to create any real penetration, despite the best efforts of captain Seleti Mateo.

Papua New Guinea will face the Cook Islands in next Sunday's Pacific Cup final and will be confident of winning through to next year's Four Nations in front of a vocal home crowd.
