Wigan half-back Jarrod Sammut self funded a 35,000-kilometre round trip to represent his Maltese heritage.
The 32-year-old booked flights off his own bat to travel to other side of there world to represent Malta just 24 hours after finishing the Super League season.
Sammut put in a man of the match display to help Malta beat Italy and then played a second test against Turkey.
The Australian-born playmaker, who is of indigenous descent, will now travel back to the UK where he will play for Malta in Wales on November 23.
Sammut said: “This team means a lot – the things you do for your heritage.”
