In the men's pool, the Cook Islands Rugby League team is the underdog in Group D. Papua New Guinea Kumul are drawn against Wales and Tonga who are the competitive teams in the international rugby league competitions.

It is not going to be easy for PNG Kumuls in this Pool D. 

Many rugby league commentators are behind the 1995 and 2000 semi-finalists Wales in the PNG pool games. However, Tonga has featured strongly against the rugby league giants Australia and New Zeland in recent games. 

The Pool D games are going to be as tough as it comes.
