How do you figure?
To be honest, they do have some damn good forwards, so it's not that outlandish a call. Fifita is probably the best when he's switched on 100%.



Also, is this only on GEM? And it's not in HD?

Fifita doesn't play off the bench though.

I think (hope) your underestimating the passion, pride & commitment of our Island neighborhoods.
IMO Tonga are single handedly changing & lifting the profile of international RL. I take my hat off to them. I'm grateful to be more excited about an international game for as long as I can remember.
Go Tonga!
There's a huge class edge between the teams though. Passion only takes you so far at this level in terms of the result.

It's great for the game how many Tongans have got behind their team though.

To be fair, Blocker Roach could have scored that try.

Terrible defensive read from the Aussies there.
Lol imagine the meltdown if it was Boyd at FB there defending in the line (there was nothing Teddy could do, but Darius gets held to an insane standard in defence).

Holmes scores again. He'll end up top try scorer at International and Origin levels if he stays on the wing.

Is Havilli the worst first grade player at the moment? He's absolutely shocking.
I’d say Lolohea would have to be close as well, I find it offensive that he’s playing five eight in an international match.

Damian Cook is kinda average without being able to take advantage of the Burgess brothers tackling the markers

Too good.

Until International Rugby League get serious about investment in quality coaching and infrastructure, Australia will continue to dominate for decades to come. When you've got Newcastle's assistant coach coaching at test level, I mean fair dinkem.

Yeah Lolohea is a pretty average player. People used to get into the Warriors for not playing him. He got a gig at the Wests Tigers and he's already been moved onto Leeds. Super League is probably his level.
