In front of an unusually calm crowd in the coastal city, Hayne made a strong case for his selection in the Australian Kangaroos side that will head to England and Wales for the Rugby League World Cup 2013.

'The Champ' scored the opening try of the match, and followed it up with a second in heavy rain in the second half.
While the stadium only holds 4,000 fans, an estimated 6,000 additional fans gathered outside the stadium, even scaling telegraph poles for a glimpse of the match or their NRL favourites.
From the Prime Minister's XIII base in Papua New Guinea, Hayne posted pictures of the playing gear he gave away - including his match-worn boots - and the traditional Bilum he received in return from PNG locals.
"[It's] always a highlight seeing so many fans at the game and even more fans outside the stadium," Hayne said.
"Thanks to the fan who gave me the bag; I wish I gave you my jersey but there was a little too much mayhem after the game! I'm sure the kids I threw it to will enjoy it."
