After a quiet opening quarter, the game exploded into life when prop Tui Kamikamica opened the scoring for Fiji in the 22nd minute.

That set off a back-and-forward period in which both sides scored before PNG captain Rhyse Martin kicked a penalty goal on the stroke of halftime to give his side a 14-12 lead at the break.

Tries to Viliame Kikau and Ben Nakubuwai in the second spell gave Fiji a slender advantage which proved the difference.

Papua New Guinea have shocked far more-fancied Fiji 26-14 in the first of the NRL's Pacific Tests at Campbelltown Stadium in Sydney. With just six NRL players to Fiji 's 10, the Kumuls ran in four tries, fullback Justin Olam starring with one and setting up another while winger Junior Rau bagged a double.

Penrith NRL back-rower Kikau was a constant threat with ball in hand for Fiji and was one of their best. Parramatta winger Maika Sivo also looked dangerous but didn't get enough ball to have a major impact on the game.

Fiji were able to get their offloads going in the second half as they promoted the ball to put pressure on a tired Kumuls defensive line.

Despite having their share of possession during a tense final 20 minutes, PNG were unable to find a try to cause an upset.

The win means Fiji top Pool B of the Oceania Cup and will play next year in Pool A alongside New Zealand and Tonga, replacing Australia who are scheduled to travel to Europe.
