Kiwis vs Tonga

As both teams take the field come June 25, NZRL aims to achieve a new world record crowd attendance for a women’s rugby league match, which currently sits at 18,000.

Pre pandemic, the No.1 ranked Kiwis were hot off a series win against Great Britain and a 34-14 victory against their Tongan rivals in 2019. Despite their loss to the Kiwis, Tonga achieved a historic 16-12 upset over the Kangaroos in the same year.

After a two year hiatus, Saturday 25 June will see the return of arguably the biggest rivalry in international rugby league, as both nations will look to assert their dominance ahead of the October Rugby League World Cup.

International Rugby League Chair Troy Grant says, “It is great to see international rugby league back on the menu in the Southern Hemisphere, and what a blockbuster to go with. I think the whole world is waiting to see clashes such as the Kiwis against Tonga as it’s the appetiser for what is to come at the World Cup and then on a regular basis from 2023 onwards.”

New Zealand Rugby League has confirmed the Kiwis will play Tonga at Mt Smart Stadium on June 25.

The Kiwis Ferns will also play against Tonga in the first fixture of a double header that sees a return to international footy in New Zealand for the first time in almost three years.

The tests will be played during the State of Origin stand-alone weekend, with Queensland playing New South Wales in Perth the following day.

Tonga then beat the Kiwis in the group stages of that tournament and have since defeated Australia and Great Britain.

Peters was also confident of arranging pre-World Cup tests for a Kiwis side involving players not featuring deep into the NRL’s 2022 finals series.

New Zealand will aim to play their first rugby league test on home soil in more than two years in 2022 with the Kiwis eyeing a homecoming during the standalone State of Origin weekend.
