Kumuls score surprise draw against Australian PMs 13

The Papua New Guinea rugby league team registered a shock 24-24 draw against the Australian Prime Minister's 13 in a rugby league match in Port Moresby at the weekend.

Australia had dominated early, scoring four first-half tries to lead 20-0 at half-time, and added another shortly after the break.

But the Kumuls, who rallied late in the first half but were unable to score, came storming back with four tries in the second half.

There's a forced change in the Fijian rugby squad at the world cup before Sunday's last pool game against Wales.
