Pacific Test Match - Toa Samoa V Tonga This Saturday

TONGA SQUAD NAMED FOR PACIFIC DERBY

 

Tonga Rugby League have today named a 20-man squad for the representative Test against Samoa at Centrebet Stadium, Penrith on Saturday.

 

Head Coach Charles Tonga, along with his assistant Coach Kristian Woolf, has selected an experienced pool of talent from across the National Rugby League competition which will be captained by Brent Kite.

 

The international fixture will be an important part of Tonga’s overall preparation leading up to the 2013 Rugby League World Cup where they face both Scotland and Italy in Pool C and Cook Islands as a cross over game with Pool D.

“We are really looking forward to this test match leading up to the World Cup,” said Head Coach Charles Tonga.

 

“Seeing the likes of Jason Taumalolo, Samsoni Langi, Daniel Foster, and Glen Fisi’iahi, our young talents, and what the future holds for them is exciting for Tonga Rugby League.

 

“It’s also good to have our experienced players like Brent Kite, Sika Manu, Fuifui Moimoi and Anthony Tupou coming back to represent our Nation.”

TOA SAMOA SQUAD FOR PACIFIC TEST

 

Rugby League Samoa are pleased to announce an 19-man squad to represent Toa Samoa in the Pacific Test Match against Tonga on Saturday April 20 at Centrebet Stadium (Penrith).

 

“It is fantastic to see the ARL Commission and the NRL throwing their support behind the international game and especially the Pacific nations,” Samoa head coach Steve Price said.

“With over 30 per cent of our players having Pacific heritage, it will be great to be able to showcase once again the diversity within the game, as we do each year with the All Stars game.

 

“I am looking forward to seeing the passion and pride that was shown during the last World Cup between these two fierce rivals and encourage fans to get out there because this is one you won’t want to miss.”
