The annual Prime Ministers Rugby League Challenge between Papua New Guinea and Australia has been confirmed for the September 26.

The match will be played at the Sir John Guise Stadium under lights.

PNGRFL chairman Sandis Tsaka says national selectors will be busy over the next few weeks as they pick teams for the various representative games that will also coincide with the Prime Ministers 13 game.

The games include a Under 16 match against New South Wales and a women's representative fixture between two teams selected from the National Confederates championships that will be staged in early September.

But Tsaka says PNG Hunters players will not be considered for selection as the month of September is a busy period when the Intrust Super Cup finals would be in progress and our boys are likely to be involved in that.
