Watch Fiji vs PNG rugby league test match live and free
The Oceania Shield is on the line between Fiji and PNG. Find out how to watch and see who'll win.
While Fiji and PNG aren't the same type of powerhouse as the likes of Australia they aren't to be taken lightly. No country is as passionate about rugby league as PNG. In fact it's the only country in the world where rugby league is the national sport.
Fiji is much the same with the team so passionate to represent the country, they'll be in tears pre-game. After the way Fiji decimated Samoa last week, people have called the Fijians the next Tonga on the international rugby league scene.
Though the first task at hand is for one of these nations to win the Oceania Shield. The winning team will be promoted to contest the Oceania Cup against Tonga and New Zealand next year.
It will be tough to predict a winner though. Fiji are in outstanding form, but PNG won the last match between the two back in 2018 and have historically been troublesome for Fiji.
When is Fiji vs PNG?
Fiji vs PNG begins at 3:20pm AEDT at Christchurch Stadium. The match precedes a clash later on between New Zealand and Great Britain.
