Further to the discussion of who should play for PNG, if you have to look at the form some of these half-cast and quarter-cast who play club rugby league and will never make it in the NRL or Super League so why they are selected is beyond me.
As for Costigen he is like 10kg over weight and is really not match fit so why he was selected is also a question.
PNG should look at what QLD state of Origin team did in the eighties and based their team on talent, willingness, loyalty and heart, these guys really wanted to play for Qld and they would die for their state on the field. Also when state of origin first started NSW players were payed 3 times the amount as Queenslanders, but this did not stop Qld from playing their best as it had nothing to do with money at the time.
This is the sort of mentally and attitude that PNG needs and we should be only be picking players
who really want to play for this Country, not just heap of wanna-bees that that in the future will want boast to their grand children that they played in the 2008 world cup.
I think players picked from overseas, should be asked to play for free for the love of our nation, to find out where their loyalty really lies.
