Papua New Guinea have sent their fans into delirium by routing Wales 50-6 in an historic Rugby League World Cup match in Port Moresby.
The Kumuls were far too slick and physical for the visitors in a 10-try to one rout on Saturday in front of 14,800 frenzied fans at the National Football Stadium, recording their first victory against the Dragons.
The match was marred by biting allegations from Welsh forward Ben Evans against prop Wellington Albert in the first half.
Evans pointed to his right forearm as he spoke to referee Ben Cummins.
Cummins then placed the incident on report, with Albert likely to miss PNG's next pool game against Ireland on November 5 if the judiciary rules against him.
Kumuls skipper David Mead crossed for a hat-trick, while second-rower Rhyse Martin scored 18 points with two tries and five conversions.
PNG, hosting their first World Cup match, delivered almopst immediately for the sellout crowd when Mead scored in the fifth minute for the home side after a clever pass from five-eighth Ase Boas.
The Welsh struggled to halt the Kumuls' dominance, with the Boas brothers, Ase and Watson, pulling the strings for the hosts as the halves pairing.
Most of the first 40 minutes was played deep in Welsh territory as the Kumuls continually made easy metres through the middle.
Winger Garry Lo and fullback Mead each ran for more than 100 metres in the first half, as the Dragons wilted in the hot and humid Port Moresby conditions.
Brisbane Broncos back Mead crossed again in the 10th minute off another Ase Boas inside ball.
Ase Boas missed both his conversion attempts and Martin took over the duties midway through the first stanza.
Centre Nene Macdonald scored in the 23rd minute and tries to Kato Ottio and Albert before the break allowed the Kumuls to head into the sheds with a 26-0 lead.
The Kumuls picked up where they left off in the second half, with Martin scoring his double inside nine minutes.
Tries to Justin Olam and Mead, followed by a converted try to Paul Aiton 10 minutes from full-time brought up the 50-point mark.
Wales scored a consolation try after the siren to winger Regan Grace.
With matches at home against Ireland and USA in the next two weeks, PNG will be confident of topping their pool and advancing to the quarter-finals.
Kumuls assistant coach Marcus Bai said it was a special day, but the team still had plenty of improvement.
"To get the win is a dream come true for us, but we've still got a lot of work to do," Bai said.
"The boys did very well to start off well and score a couple of tries and then kept going."
Mead said he'd already spoken to the team about improving ball security for next weekend's clash with Ireland.
"Just to build more pressure, we want to ingrain that into our team," he said.
Welsh coach John Kear didn't want to use the conditions as an excuse.
"I didn't think we performed well in any aspect of rugby league today, I think it's been a very harsh lesson," Kerr said.
"We just never got any opportunity to attack because we couldn't prevent the roll-on from Papua New Guinea and I've got to compliment them."
