Sport: Vanuatu outclassed in rugby league friendly

2:48 pm on 24 February 2014

Vanuatu have been thrashed 44-6 by the Sunshine Coast Falcons in a rugby league exhibition match in Brisbane.

Front rower Herbie Henderson scored the Melanesian side's only try with fullback Kunro Kalo adding the extras.

The game at Suncorp Stadium was a curtain raiser to the Bulldogs v Storm NRL trial match and is the first run-out for the Vanuatu national team since historic tests against Solomon Islands and Niue in October.
