PNG Kumuls International Watson Boas: A Man Possessed

Writes Terence Kapipi Yacop

For the first time in an age, the PNG Kumuls depth in the halves is deep and peaking. What the Kumuls lacked in size they now have in creativity and control. This is headlined by the emergence of crafty homegrown halfback Watson Boas.

At Just 25 years of age, Watson Boas is turning out to be an imposing general who leads by example for the Papua New Guinea Kumuls. His energy in defense and attack was among the best in the Bati test match. His name was mentioned by the commentary team countless times that one would suspect a love affair. But no, Boas was a man possessed, he was literally everywhere.

Watson's kicking game is maturing at the same rate as his composure. He's starting to read the games better, backing up in line breaks and being the first support in broken play. He was there when Edene '501A' Gabbie flicked that now infamous flick pass for Watson to score. Watson was rattled and had to take a few moments off because he was the tackler that smashed the Fijian ball runner into forcing the error.

Being one of the quickest in the team, the timing in which Waston runs the ball to attack the Fijian defensive lines was exciting to watch. The commentators were clearly aroused, who blames them.

The development of Boas has greatly influenced and impact Kyle Laybutt outside of him, who played his best game in the Kumuls againt the Batis. Together they nearly dismantled the Fijians.. Only if it wasn't for that b*stard of a referee who.... Apologies there losing my cool..

Anyways, Watson has always been a tough nut to crack defensively. The list of elite footballers he has lifted and dumped on their backs is long. Oh, add that Superstar Maika Sivo to that list. Coaches dream of having a halfback who can defend but for Marum, we he can sleep peacefully for the next few nights as Boas, Laybutt and Edwin Ipape are brutal defenders who will tear into the ice cold Lion meat from Britain. Watson intentions were clear early when he came out of nowhere and crashed inot Suliasi Vunivalu like the Rabaul Volcano. Vunivalu was scoring for all money but Boas had things like smashing and crashing out on the sidelines on his mind.

The Kumuls finally have command and control in Watson Boas and partner in crimes Kyle Laybutt. Backed Up by Puara's exotic dummy half runs, the Kumuls will surely be feasting on Lion meat on the Weekend.
