Thaiday expects PNG to be "tough"

Sam Thaiday says he expects just one thing from the Papua New Guinean rugby league team later this month in the Four Nations tournament - "tough footy". <br><br> The Australians will open their Four Nations campaign against the Kumuls in Sydney on October 24, with Thaiday joining captain Darren Lockyer as Broncos in the squad. <br><br> And while PNG are not expected to trouble Australia, New Zealand or England in the tournament, Thaiday said they would be a handful. <br><br> The Kumuls have already played a game against the Australian Prime Minister's XIII, only going down 30-18. <br><br> "They are very tough - its like hitting a brick wall against some of their players," said Thaiday, who has faced PNG twice before. <br><br> "They will throw everything out against us and we have them the first game so they are going to be fresh. <br><br> "It is going to be a tough ask." <br><br> For more information go to <a href="http://www.rlfournations.com">www.rlfournations.com</a>
