    Jason Taumalolo, Andrew Fifita and Will Hopoate are set to come under consideration to captain a Tonga side bolstered by the defection of New Zealand prop Addin Fonua-Blake in next week’s Pacific Test against Samoa.

    Fonua-Blake, who played for Tonga in last year’s corresponding Test against Fiji, has decided to again align himself to the Mate Ma’a after representing the Kiwis at the World Cup.

    The Manly prop will join a powerful Tongan pack led by Taumalolo and Fifita, which is set to also include the likes of Tevita Pangai jnr, Joe Ofahengaue, Siosiua Taukieaho, Peni Terepo and Manu Ma’u.


    Hopoate, Konrad Hurrell, David Fusitu’a Solomone Kata, Mahe Fonua, Daniel Tupou and the Jennings brothers, Michael, Robert and George are in contention for places in the outside backs.

    Canberra’s Ata Hingano and Wests Tigers utility Tuimoala Lolahea will again be the halves, while Raiders hooker Siliva Havilli and Penrith’s Sione Katoa are likely to share the dummy-half role.

    Tonga coach Kristian Woolf plans to announce a 19-man squad on Thursday and he revealed it would comprise of NRL players only due to the cost of flying the likes of Sika Manu and Ben Murdoch-Masila from England.

    Me too

    But would really like Australia nz and poms to play these sides regularly as well (other than world cup)

    Smith/Gronk/Thurston/Slater not around any more, more and more NRL players will be in the pacific island sides

    Many games would be closer than ever

    Expect Meninga to call it quits in a year or two I reckon
