Winterstein treble aids Samoa

RUGBY LEAGUE: A hat-trick from Antonio Winterstein helped Samoa to a 38-4 defeat of Papua New Guinea at Craven Park last night. Pita Godinet, Ben Roberts, Sauaso Sue and Suaia Matagi also ran in tries in the World Cup Group B clash. Papua New Guinea must beat holders New Zealand on Friday to avoid elimination, while the losers of the match between Samoa and France look likely to meet England in the quarter-finals.
