Bati to take on Kumuls

The Vodafone Fiji Bati will play the Papua New Guinea Kumuls in June as Pacific Test rugby league returns to the international arena.

The Bati Kumuls test originally scheduled for last year had been called off due to the rampaging COVID-19 pandemic.

Two games will be held at Campbelltown in Sydney where the Bati play the Kumuls, Samoa take on the Cook Islands while New Zealand hosts Tonga in Auckland.

The Pacific Tests take place in between the National Rugby Leagues representative round, with the women’s State of Origin in Canberra on June 24 and Game II of the men’s series between NSW and Queensland in Perth on June 26.

Fiji National Rugby League chief executive Don Natabe said it was an exciting time to see our Bati return to the playing field.

The Bati beat the Kumuls 22-20 in their last meeting in 2019.
