Kiwis upset at Kumuls Withdrawal

New Zealand League officials are angry at the Papua New Guinea league team for pulling out of its upcoming tour here.

The tour, scheduled for later in the year, included a test against the Kiwis to give the PNG team some international experience.

NZRL chairman Selwyn Pearson says their reasons for pulling out of the test are obscure and annoying considering how much work the NZRL board has put into getting the tour organised.

Pearson says he cannot understand why they would pull out of the tour as it was organised for their benefit.
