Kangaroos captain says opening Four Nations weekend scratchy

12:04 pm on 26 October 2010

While record-breaking Kangaroos skipper Darren Lockyer says Sunday's Four Nations victory over Papua New Guinea was his last Test on Sydney soil, his veteran offsider Petero Civoniceva hasn't ruled out playing at Test level come 2012.

With next May's one-off Test against New Zealand being held across the Tasman Lockyer feels the 42-nil drubbing of PNG in Parramatta will be his last Test in Sydney.

But the 34-year-old Civoniceva says he isn't quite ready to follow suit.

Papua New Guinea take on New Zealand in Rotorua on Saturday while Australia face England in Melbourne on Sunday and Lockyer says all four sides will have to lift their performance's with not one of the teams playing to their potential on the weekend.
