Tonga Rugby World Cup Fixtures, Squad, Group, Guide
Tonga had a tough start to the 2019 Rugby World Cup but finished on a high by beating the USA in Osaka.
How They Qualified
Tonga came second in the Pacific Tri-Nations behind Fiji and as a result qualified for the 2019 World Cup.
Sonatane Takulua, No 9 and goalkicker, gives them zip and Telusa Veainu has a step to die for. Tonga have also been looking to James Faiva to add a new dimension from fly-half.
The Coach – Toutai Kefu
The former Wallaby No 8 took the reins in 2016 shortly after World Rugby agreed a rescue package for the cash-strapped Tongan union.
The set-piece is a big area for Tonga to focus on, particularly given that they have Argentina, England and France in their pool.
