Vodafone Fijian Bati squad member Korbin Sims jetted into the country on Monday and teamed up with the rest of the players yesterday.

The 25-year-old is excited to be representing his country again for his second Rugby League World Cup later this month.

And now that he has recovered successfully from his arm injury, Sims anticipates an exciting encounter in the Tri-Nations this Saturday against the Kangaroos and Papua New Guinea Kumuls at the ANZ Stadium.

“It’s good to be back and prepare for this year’s RLWC, my preparation has been good, no broken arms.

“I’m confident with the time I had been getting away from football and all rehabs have worked,” Sims said.

It’s always exciting to see the Sims brothers battling on the field with their ruthless defence.

“We always enjoy ourselves when we get on the field unfortunately our brother Tariq couldn’t be here due to injury but we always have fun together.

“The Tri-Nations will be a great clash, all three countries will be strong and competitive,” Korbin said.

Boa brothers eager

Port Moresby:  SP PNG Hunters Boas brothers, Ase and Watson are eager to make PNG proud as they appear in the PNG Kumuls jersey together this Saturday against the Vodafone Fijian Bati and Kangaroos in the Tri-Nations.

Ase Boas has big shoes to fill as he steps into the limelight of the role as co-captain while younger brother (Watson) is capable as a playmaker in the squad. Kumuls co-captain Ase Boas said it is a great experience for both of them.

“We had a good season in the ISC tournament and playing among most NRL representatives such as David Mead (captain), Luke Paige, Reese Martin, Kurt Baptist plus James Segeyaro a really good boost for an evenly equipped team,” he added.

Playing for Hunters, the Kumuls, and to debut in their world Cup warm-up side is such a key role is always a good indicator that you will be amongst the picks.

“We played together in 2015 and early this year, we have 10 Hunters’ boys in the team and this will be a challenge for all the boys to go out and perform to the best of our abilities,” he added.
