Namo, alongside the likes of Leeds Rhinos stars Rhyse Martin and Nene MacDonald, Leigh Leopards men Edwin Ipape and Lachlan Lam among other, caught the eye for the Kumuls as they made it to the quarter-finals.

The forward routinely impressed especially against Tonga in the opening game and now his move to North Queensland Cowboys in has been confirmed according to Zerotackle.

“I can confirm that Sylvester has been provided a training opportunity with the NRL squad,” Cowboys recruitment manager Dane Campbell told the PNG National.

“We’re excited to start working with Sylvester as he played very well for the Hunters and the Kumuls at the World Cup.

“We believe that having this opportunity to train with our NRL squad will continue to develop his skills.”

The club themselves tweeted saying: “PNG Kumuls middle forward Sylvester Namo has signed a train and replacement contract for the 2023 season.”
