Didn't Tonga go to court over a couple of players eligibilty before the last WC? Given the view of the RLIF, I'd be surprised if the Tongans don't, at the very least, enquire about Mateo's eligibility. 

yeah the two players played in the qualifiers for Tonga, swtched to NZ and played in the tour here a few years back, missed out on the kiwi squad for the WC then wanted to switch back to Tonga.

 

This is Different as Mateo hasnt played for any other nation or AFAIK hasnt even played origin.

You're right he hasn't played Origin, but he played City v Country twice. All comes down to this 'country of election' business.

We will see what it comes down to when the squads come out but I would imagine Mateo will be in Tongas
