St George Illawarra Dragons second-rower Tyson Frizell is keen to experience firsthand everything that comes with representing the Australia Prime Minister’s XIII team against the Papua New Guinea Kumuls in Port Moresby on Saturday, September 24.
The NSW Blues representative, alongside teammate Josh Dugan, is part of a 17-man travelling squad named by Head Coach Mal Meninga for the annual fixture.
Frizell is honoured to be named amongst a strong contingent of travelling players and is excited to immerse himself in the build-up to the game.
“It is an honour to earn any kind of representative jersey and playing for the Prime Minister’s XIII is a first for myself,” said Frizell.
“I look forward to going over there and playing with a few other NRL boys who are also looking for a spot in the touring side.
“I haven’t played with many of the players named in the team except for those who have represented the NSW Blues so it will definitely be a great experience for myself.
“Josh is travelling with me and I have spoken to him about what to expect and he said it was an experience as everyone there loves their footy.
‘They are a very passionate group of supporters and it’ll be unreal to be involved in it.”
