The Mate Ma’a Tonga have announced a powerful team to face the Vodafone Fijian Bati at next Saturday’s international rugby league triple-header at Campbelltown Sports Stadium in Sydney, Australia.

The Tongans have included Michael Jennings, Will Hopoate and Andrew Fifita.

The PNG Kumuls open proceedings in the first Test on May 6 when they take on Cook Islands before traditional rivals Fiji and Tonga face off in the penultimate match of the evening. Toa Samoa complete the triple-header when on they take on number three-ranked side, England.

Mate Ma’a Tonga coach Kristian Woolf was looking forward to the week ahead with calibre of players named in his squad.

“This is the first time since I’ve been involved that every player is coming straight from an elite NRL system, which is really exciting,” Woolf said.

“It’s the most talented group we’ve ever assembled, so if we work hard as a team next Saturday against Fiji, I’ve got no doubt we’ll fulfil our potential this year.”
