Tonga Vs England

Tonga have fallen one step short of the Rugby League World Cup decider, downed 20-18 by England in Saturday's semi-final in Auckland.
Backed by a partisan Tongan crowd, Mate Ma'a brought all their trademark bullishness but blundered early with ball in hand to trail 14-0.
They came up agonisingly short in an extraordinary final period, in which they scored three late tries in five minutes.
Ex-Kangaroo prop Andrew Fifita appeared to have scored the winner with the final play of the match, only to be called back for a contentious knock-on.
It appeared the ball had been stripped one-on-one by English second-rower Elliott Whitehead, rather than dropped - allowing Fifita to continue.
However, he was called back by referee Matt Cecchin.

Tonga Vs Samoa Game 2017

When Toa Samoa and Mate Ma’a Tonga pack down for a scrum in Saturday’s pacific nation blockbuster, the combined weight of the forwards will be heavier than three grand pianos stacked on top of each other. Some of the biggest bodies in Rugby League will go head to head in Saturday’s highly anticipated clash, with the forward packs of both teams weighing over half a ton. With a difference of just , there isn’t much to split the two forwards packs, which could come in handy for Samoa who have won three of the past four test matches they’ve played against Tonga since 2008. But for Samoan prop, Herman Ese’ese, size won’t matter, as long as his team works as a unit. 

Manaiakalani Film Festival 2017

Yesterday we went to Sylvia Park to the cinema. It was the 10th anniversary making Manaiakalani films. Room 12, Year 8's made an awesome film about sportsmanship in Rugby.

My favourite movie from Ruapotaka School, was all of our films because it all had a message for you and how to be safe in life.

Tonga At The Airport!!!

Tonga will have no shortage of supporters when they take on the Kiwis, judging by the scenes at Auckland Airport early Tuesday morning. The Tongan Rugby League World Cup squad arrived from Australia to a sea of red with One News reporting that about 2000 fans greeted them in the arrivals area. The players soaked up the colorful atmosphere as they were greeted with singing and dancing, while a junior Tonga team performed the Si-pi Tau, in which the senior side responded. And they made an impressive start to their campaign on Sunday with a 50-4 victory over Scotland in Cairns. Tonga play traditional rivals Samoa in Hamilton on Saturday before the crunch clash against the Kiwis a week later at the same venue. Tongan fans will have another chance to mingle with the squad on Tuesday during a signing session at the Otahuhu Rugby League Club in Auckland from 3 pm.

Tonga Won To Scotland

Yesterday there was a game between Tonga and Scotland. Tonga are set to kick off their highly anticipated World Cup campaign with a bang against Scotland at Barlow Park in Cairns. The Mate Ma'a have a hugely stacked squad following controversial decisions from multiple key players, such as Jason Taumalolo and Andrew Fifita, to turn their backs on New Zealand and Australia to play for the South Pacific nation at this tournament. As a result, the Tongans are widely expected to qualify for at least the quarter-finals, and potentially the semi finals, such is the star power that exists within their side. Scotland have a few key players of their own, including Warriors second-rower James Bell, and will be looking to create an upset in the north Queensland city. Next to play is Tonga and NZ and then the next game is Tonga and Samoa.

Maybe they've got low self-esteem, maybe they just don't have strategies that other kids have, he said. These are Dave Atkinson's top three tips for dealing with your child's bullying behavior.
