What a game it was – a slow start from the Kumuls but they just powered their way into the second half after the Ipape try, they were simply unstoppable.
The English and Australia fans have unleashed some pretty brutal tweets against the British Lions with obvious calls of sacking the coach while others putting the blame on the players for not having the desire to match the enthusiasm and passion of the home side.
Enjoy the brutal and at times hilarious comments from the tweets we’ve picked.

GB were poor but the Kumuls played tough today.

Could someone please tell me which of the 38 minutes we were “at our best”.
We may have had 38 mins which the coach feels we were better than PNG but “at our best?” Come on.

Love seeing the Kumuls smashing the poms #borninPNG

Flogged, dismal and possibly now defunct Lions.
Long live the Kumuls.#PNGvGB

If I was a Kumuls player I would not be letting my jersey go from that game

As a #RugbyLeague fan, I’m delighted for @PNGKumulsRL – a thoroughly deserved win against a very poor #GBRLLions side that will go down in history.
As a #GreatBritain fan, this tour has been a depressing shambles. No heart, no effort, no desire. Woeful.#PNGvGBL #Kumuls

In 2009 I sent some boots and balls to PNG via the kit for Kumuls scheme.
Fair to say it’s backfired! https://t.co/sFT2mRgYai

Let’s hope they never let Wayne Bennett near the Kumuls

The GB Lions rebranding has been obliterated.Looks like the dressing room was well and truly lost at HT.Just shocking.We are the 2nd tier nation.

I genuinely can’t see them having the balls to tell Bennett they’re aren’t offering him a new contract. I hope I’m wrong.

This game is absolutely ridiculous!

Is it too cynical to believe that Wayne Bennett’s commitment to #RugbyLeague is so strong that he has turned #GBRLLIONS into a complete shower in order to help the sport in New Zealand, #tonga & #PNG! I’m joking, but this lot are a rabble. Woeful stuff. But go the #Kumuls! #bbcrl
