Mate Ma’a Tonga vs Samoa Match Preview

This could well turn out to be the game of the Rugby League World Cup as Tonga take on Samoa in a mouth-watering battle of the Pacific Island outfits. Both teams started the tournament with hopes of lifting the RLWC crown, but one side will not even make it to the final four as they take on one another in this quarter-final matchup at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

The Tongans finally hit their straps in a demolition job against Cook Islands while Samoa have also done well since their opening day hammering against England.

This contest could genuinely go either way but with the teams so well-matched, a close affair is expected with the winning side expected to prevail by a margin of 1-12 points.

THE TEAM NEWS

TONGA

  • Tonga failed to impress in their opening two games of the Rugby League World Cup but they put that right with a record-breaking display against Cook Islands last week as they posted 92 points in what was a brilliant attacking performance.
