Tonga can score points, but cannot defend and too much dropped ball in first half, Australia as usual getting all the desisions, 8 point try no way.

Been a great game.
Speed, power, played in a mental atmosphere.
Tongans done alright but the Aussies have been clinical.
Tedesco is top drawer.
Enjoyed it.

Tonga exciting to watch for parts of the game however they are not the same side they were 12 months ago.

Strongly disagree. Tonga’s players haven’t had a game for between 4 and 7 weeks, obviously they are a bit rusty. If Tonga played England next week they’d win comfortably.

Fine words from Cordner and Sika in their post-match pitchside interviews.

Boo hoo? That’s how the international structure works, Tonga’s set completion for the first half was around 58% and you can disagree all you want Jean; it’s simply not good enough and as I said, not the same side they were 12 months ago.

Tonga didn’t beat England last year and certainly wouldn’t with the Wakey boys now in the England squad.

I’d also expect Lolohea to have one year at Leeds, based on that performance. His running game pulled it back for him slightly but for a halfback he offered nothing.
