Just a heads up for those still unaware, Premier Sports have REMOVED the live broadcast of this match from their scheduling.
The game will no longer be shown live - making a mockery of their tagline 'every WC game shown live' - and will now be shown later in the day at 11:30am instead. Note that this is after several other games have been shown, during which you are more than likely to have the result of this match spoiled for you.

So yeah, cheers Premier for delaying what is probably the most mouth-watering tie out of the entire group stages of the world cup.

Damn, this is arguably the tie of the group phase.

Only option is to tape all the games and start with the re run of the NZ - Tonga match, they will certainly mention that game in the following matches. Poor stuff form Premier, wonder if this points to them possibly losing NRL rights down the line as I don't think anything has been announced yet for next season has it?
What you looking at?....Butt Head!!

I just have the smarts not to mention the result - I'm sure they will though :(

The schedule on the premier sports website shows football on Saturday morning from 3am to 5am. Ironically, New Zealand are playing in that game too :lol:

Tonga have been massively weakened with the news that Jennings is ruled out with injury. Someone called Mahe Fonua is replacing him :)

So, do we want NZ to win or not? Presumably if they do it will be them that England have to play in the SF. Would a Tonga victory therefore give us a better chance of making the final?
