Kumuls selection still open to domestic competition

Selection for the PNG LNG Kumuls to participate in the 2017 World Cup is still open to players taking part in domestic competitions like the Digicel Cup.

Kumuls coach Michael Marum says there’s no guarantee that the players that challenged Fiji in the recent Pacific Test have a place in the Kumuls.

Marum said they will have to compete against everyone else including players in the Digicel Cup, Queensland Intrust Super Cup, NRL and the Super League that is played in England.

He said all these players are performing well and will be considered as selectors will have to pick the best players.

“There’s no automatic selection for players that played against Fiji.

“It doesn’t mean that we won one game and they will be automatic selection for the next international games including the World Cup,” Marum said.

Marum added that everyone has to work hard to be considered in the selection as we want best results and the best team for the World Cup.
