It’s probably not the wisest career move but Brisbane and Papua New Guinea star David Mead is hoping to ruin Broncos and England coach Wayne Bennett’s day when the two nations collide in Sunday’s RLWC quarter-final in Melbourne.

Mead will captain the Kumuls against Bennett’s heavily-favoured England side at AAMI Park, with a spot in the semi-finals up for grabs.

The Kumuls are undefeated in the tournament so far after victories over Wales, Ireland and USA in the pool stage.

They face a big step up in opposition this weekend but Mead is daring to dream of a massive upset against the Poms and his veteran club coach.

“I think he’ll certainly help them be a stronger side,” Mead said of Bennett.

There’s no doubt that Wayne’s obviously a very good coach and he’s got a good record.

“He’s a big boost for England but hopefully we spoil the party for them on Sunday afternoon.

Asked what PNG’s successful campaign will do for the code in rugby-league mad PNG, Mead replied: “It’s going to help the game grow in Papua New Guinea and make it stronger.”

“As long as we’re consistent with the junior football in PNG as well and helping that develop, I think that’s certainly going to make the country stronger as a nation.

“And I believe all the other Pacific teams as well – Tonga, Fiji, Samoa – all those teams are going to certainly benefit from this Rugby League World Cup and hopefully the game gets stronger and we can compete with the top nations on a consistent basis.”
