Other Rugby League Internationals

Postby Scooter » Fri Oct 04, 2013 5:50 pm

Apparently Dane Nielsen is set to make his international debut in his home town of Mackay tomorrow. He is set to play for the Solomon Islands against Vanuatu. Mattpoet if he plays there is another country to add to the list that Storm (and ex-Storm) players have represented. Good luck Danger.

I was hoping Justin O'Neill might be playing for Vanuatu, but he wasn't named in the team.

Next week Vanuatu is hosting a test against Niue.

I believe it would be another one to add to the list Scooter, I can't find any previous Solomon Islanders. Nice catch by the way, if you hear any scores/scorers please post an update.

Thanks Mattpoet. I think this is the first test the Solomon Islands have played. I have seen the Vanuatu team but still haven't seen Solomon Islands' team.

Been trying to find the scorers, haven't even been able to find the Solomon Islands team, hopefully that information will crop up on the web sooner or later.

I read in the lead up to the game that former Storm Under 20s player Will Naitoro was also set to play for Solomon Islands.

I heard somewhere that Sisa was playing for Fiji in a warm up game this weekend, does anyone know if this is the case?
