    Tonga by 12+.

    They have halves, and Samoa's best players have either just been picked foe NZ, injured, or playing for QLD.

    If Milford is dropped for Origin, can he be picked for Samoa?
    Or will uncle Wayne ban him?

    IF Milford plays I think Samoa have the slight advantage in the halves, with Tonga likely putting out Lolohea and Hingano.

    Tonga's stacked forward pack should put them on the front foot though and they definitely have more quality in the backline.

    Samoa will be hoping for a better performance than the WC but I don't think they'll have enough for Tonga. Milford having a blinder is their best chance but it's unlikely.

    Tonga by 14

    Good looking teams. Great to see Milford playing.

    That forward park for tonga really is phenomenal. Let's just hope they don't need havili kicking any field goals.

    Samoas spine looks significantly better then the World Cup, Tonga still favourites but I think it will be pretty close

    So much derp and obesity in both teams should be entertaining...

    Oh my...that Samoan team with Taufua, Milford, Blowjob Leilua and Kasiano will be worth watching for the derp alone!

    More atmosphere and noise there than State of Origin, and the crowd is half the size
