PNG Kumuls will be relying on the Boas brothers as they prepare for the Tri-Nations series against the Vodafone Fiji Bati and the Kangaroos at the ANZ Stadium tomorrow.

Watson Boas said it was always his dream to wear the Kumuls jersey.

"It is a great opportunity for me because I'll be playing for my country," he said.

"It is a big boost to play alongside my brother Ase Boas knowing that he will be by my side this weekend.

"After we won the Queensland Cup, we went straight into training and looking at the boys we're ready.

"Since this is a trial match for us, most of us had played together last year and we're all vying for a spot in the final team to the Rugby League World Cup.

"The most important thing that we're working on is our combination."

The East New Britain and Simbu lad said he was looking forward to the world cup as it was special for him since he would be turning 23 and would be playing his second world cup.
