Saturday sees the return of rugby league's Pacific Test Invitational from Campbelltown Stadium in New South Wales, and this year it's live on Sky Sports!
We will be treated to an exciting double-header as Papua New Guinea take on Fiji, live on Sky Sports Arena from 7am, and Samoa face Tonga, live on Sky Sports Arena Red Button from 10am.
Papua New Guinea captured imaginations at last year's World Cup with their support and on-field skills as they reached the quarter-finals before bowing out to eventual finalists England.
Fiji meanwhile, pulled off one of the performances of the tournament last year to knock New Zealand out at the quarter-finals but ultimately lost to eventual champions Australia.
Papua New Guinea players to watch: Nene Macdonald, James Segeyaro.
Fiji players to watch: Jarryd Hayne, Suliasi Vunivalu.
After that, we'll get the chance to enjoy Samoa v Tonga. While Samoa may have been soundly beaten in the quarter-finals by Australia at the World Cup, for Tonga, it was an altogether different story.
Tonga enjoyed a marvellous World Cup campaign reaching the semi-finals before just losing out to England.
Having gone 20-0 behind, Tonga looked dead and buried with only seven minutes remaining, but notched three converted tries before Andrew Fifita looked to have, incredibly, won it in the final second.
It was decided, however, that Fifita had knocked on the ball in contact with England backrower Elliott Whitehead before regathering, ending their World Cup amidst emotional scenes.
Tonga players to watch: Jason Taumalolo, Will Hopoate, Daniel Tupou.
Samoa players to watch: Anthony Milford, Mason Lino, Tim Lafai, Sam Kasiano, Tyrone May.
In the first international rugby since last year's showpiece tournament, senior manager of Pacific Strategy, Frank Puletua, expects a sell-out in Australia, as was the case in last year's Pacific Test.
"Last year's Pacific Test and the Rugby League World Cup showed just how much rugby league means to our Pacific players and the communities they represent," Puletua said.
"The players get to connect with their culture, their peers and the wider community. I encourage everyone to come along and witness the colour, flair, power and passion that the Pacific Test Invitational produces both on and off the field.
"It is truly something special."
