Rugby League – PNG a threat warns Widdop

Gareth Widdop is preparing for a tough challenge when England face Papua New Guinea in the quarter-finals of the Rugby League World Cup. The St George Illawarra Dragons star was speaking after impressing in a 36-6 victory over France which ensured a place in the knockout stages of the tournament. And next up is a PNG outfit who have won three out of three so far, with the last-eight showdown scheduled for Melbourne next Sunday. "They're a great team, they've played really well the last few weeks," Widdop told reporters. "It's going to be a really tough challenge, but we've been speaking about this the last few weeks. "It's about what we do, make sure we're doing our job individually and if we can do that, it's job done." England are available at 19/100 with bet365 to defeat Papua New Guinea, while they are 13/8 to end the World Cup as runners-up.
