That's good to see but without the help of the best pacific islanders from all small countries NZ grow weakerand Aus chances of winning easily grow.

Not that the aussies really looked like struggling in the 1st place

Fifita, Taumalolo in Tonga World Cup squad

Star forwards Andrew Fifita and Jason Taumalolo headline an impressive 24-man Tongan squad named for the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.

The addition of the representative middle men bolsters an already impressive squad, with all 24 men either currently playing in the NRL or with previous NRL experience.

Michael Jennings, Daniel Tupou, David Fusitu'a, Will Hopoate, Konrad Hurrell, Solomone Kata, Mahe Fonua and Manu Vatuvei will fight for places across the backline, while Sio Siua Taukeiaho, Sika Manu, Joe Ofahengaue, Tevita Pangai Jnr and Sam Moa will complement the go-forward Taumalolo and Fifita provide.

Tonga will start their campaign against Scotland in Cairns before travelling to Hamilton to face fierce rivals Samoa and New Zealand in successive weeks.

WOW! Boyd out and Mansour in over Tedesco.

I think Teddy will be blaming his team mates and the Tigers poor season for his non selection, but I think there is more to Maniga's decision. I think he might have seen what most of us Tigers fans saw and that was a season from Teddy that was well below the previous couple of years.

No doubt Teddy tried his guts out, but he was also guilty of stifling the attack and seems to have lost that passing game he had to setup his outside men. Sure he made plenty of metres and a gazillion tackle breaks but they rarely led to points.

I think Boyd was selected as a winger, and replaced with a winger
