Samoa versus Tonga in the past would not really get many bums on seats because it would more than likely be an error-strewn contest more seen at amateur level – but not anymore.

Players nowadays seem to be more proud to play for their country of birth rather than a stepping stone to represent Australia or New Zealand and that shows on the field.

Both teams are heavily loaded with top names that are already setting the NRL on fire and they include Leeson Ah Mau, Sam Kasiano, Issac Lui, Daniel Vidot and Josh McGuire for Samoa, while Tonga have Sika Manu, Jorge Taufua, Richard Fa’aoso and Konrad Hurrell in their ranks.

Robert Jennings and Anthony Tupou have been forced to withdraw from the Tongan side to Samoa because of injuries, Jorge Taufua and Asipeli Fine have been brought into a 19-man .

Tonga and Samoa have met eight times with Samoa winning five matches, Tonga two and one match drawn with the first Test played back in 1998. 

The teams have met four times over the last decade with Tonga winning three of those matches, including the inaugural Pacific Test in 2013 36-4. Mahe Fonua and Samisoni Laingi both scored doubles in that match while Daniel Vidot scored Samoa’s only try.
