Tonga have breathed new life back into International Rugby League with their famous World Cup run last year. Mate Ma’a, boosted by the defection of Andrew Fifita and Jason Taumalolo and other big-name stars, played before sell-out crowds for most of their World Cup fixtures in New Zealand, including the pool match in which they stunned the Kiwis 28-22 before losing 20-18 to England in the semi-final in controversial circumstances. Coach Kristian Woolf is delighted with Tonga’s stunning run to the World Cup semi-finals to become the fourth best team in the world has been acknowledged by the international powerhouse of Rugby League, that is Australia. “We have been very vocal about wanting to play other tier-one countries. It’s a wonderful opportunity,” he said. Sydney Roosters forward Sio Siua Taukieaho and Parramatta’s Manu Ma’u have both pledged their allegiance to Tonga, together with young Brisbane Broncos prop Tevita Pangai Junior. Tonga’s toughness aside, we like the Kangaroos to win and if you’re in the market for a margin bet, take the great $3.00 on offer for the Kangaroos to win by 1-12 points as Tonga push the World Champs all-the-way.
