PNG made it a one-sided game early on with David Mead scroring a double inside the first 10 minutes and unsually Ase Boas missed both the conversions and subsequently was replaced in the goal kicking role.

The second half was more of the same for Papua New Guinea with another 5 tries in the second 40. PNG opened the second half scoring through their Bulldogs second rower Rhyse Martin who also scored his second just nine minutes after he scored his first despite only converting one of his efforts.
