I thought chase Stanley was injured and out for the whole season? Also didn't josh papalli choose Queensland over NZ and can't really see RTS playing for Samoa when he's a bolter for the kiwis in the up comming Anzac test and world cup.

And the game isn't live on Premier Sports, and as far as I can make out isn't being shown on replay at any time either.

With a team full of NRL players like that they must be a good bet to qualify from their group at the world cup.

I think this is a great addition. What a shame it isn't being played in Tonga or Samoa. If RL is serious about the international game, then these nations must be given international opportunities during representative weekends, just as Aus and NZ are. 

 

Would be great if Cook Islands and PNG had a game on as well.

 

This will give islanders more incentive to play for their home nations rather than the big nations.

I've just watched the game on a certain website (it came on after the SOO U20 game which I missed) and it was a really good game. Tonga look to be a very big team and I'm looking forward to seeing them at the Shay later this year.

Somehow I can't see an Italian victory

It could be very interesting. The Italians are also likely to be a NRL second team, no pushovers.

Good crowd of 10,143 - just a pity a few of the fans got a bit excited at the end and ran on to the pitch.

Amazing game. Glad to see Tonga get up. Amazing Hakas and anthems.

 

This needs to be an annual event!

Really positive article, would be great if those games became regular. It's also the first ever positive article I've seen about Leagues eligibility rules!!

Rugby Union the only game in the world were the spectators handle the ball more than the players.

Is that official though, as this article suggests that the captains of the two teams are under the impression its not confirmed:-

Full match from You Tube:-

 

 

Have a listen to the ground announcer in the background during the pitch invasion at the end of the match telling the fans to get off the pitch, shouting "You should be ashamed of yourselves" and "Have some respect for yourselves". :lol:
