Albion Park Olympian Blake Govers has returned to the international scene in spectacular style at the Oceania Cup on Wednesday night.

Govers scored five goals in the 30-nil demolition of Papua New Guinea in Sydney. 

It is his first game for the Kookaburras since competing at the Rio Olympics last year.

“It’s good to be back in the group after over a year now,” Govers said.

“Coming back and getting away with five goals is really good.

“The boys were looking sharp, so it’s good leading into (tonight’s) game against NZ.”
