Pa­pua New Guinea play­maker Ase Boas has warmed up for the World Cup by be­ing named the best player in this year’s Queens­land Cup.

Boas earned the top gong at the QRL awards night this week, beat­ing the likes of Matt Lodge and Brodie Croft to get the choco­lates. The Hunters cap­tain will line up for PNG at the in­ter­na­tional tour­na­ment in Novem­ber.-

“I haven’t re­ally delved too deeply into his lat­est in­dis­cre­tions and why he didn’t play on the week­end. That’s who I am, I don’t want to be pry­ing at this time of the year be­cause it’s such an im­por­tant game and par­tic­u­larly the Dragons this week­end. “The play­ers un­der­stand that be­hav­iour is a re­ally im­por­tant part of what we do with the Kan­ga­roos, it’s an im­por­tant part of who we are. You’ve got to dis­play the right traits. “I’ll make a de­ci­sion when the heat of emo­tion has died down and there’s less me­dia at­ten­tion and we’ll make some de­ci­sions down the track.”
