RLWC2017 - New Zealand v. Tonga Report





The much anticipated clash between New Zealand and Tonga would determine which side would finish atop Group B. Both sides had been impressive in their opening two group fixtures registering two big wins each and scoring seemingly at will.

 

The venue was a packed Waikato Stadium in Hamilton and the atmosphere was raised several notches as the two sides presented their cultural exchange, a little too close to one another in their shows of strength.

 

The stage was set for a belter with the bookies suggesting a New Zealand win, as Tonga were without the services of the free scoring Michael Johnson. The winners would likely have a quarter final game against Lebanon with the losers facing Fiji.

What a game! Absolutely enthralling.

If Tonga can 'recover' from this unrelenting physical encounter then they will be a force in the knock-out stage.

Rugby League at it's very best, a physical war but with all the skills too. Even the haka had the hairs on your neck standing...the grudge was there to see! Tremendous stuff.

Tonga have lit up the world cup and are genuine contenders. NZ are not finished by any means but now have a very tough draw to go all the way. What a player they have in full back Roger Tuivasa-Sheck absolute superstar.
