They were not strong but it was good experience and I praise their good sportsmanship.“We are now looking forward to the match against Fiji (at 18:30) as they won this morning with a huge margin, defeating Solomon Islands 22-1.”Before that match at BSP Arena, Papua New Guinea take on Solomon Islands at 17:00.last_img
