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. It can teach you how to achieve and how you could be a champion. My favourite movie was Pasifika Food made by Tamaki College. 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.

Today we did Orienteering, inside because we had to use our brain to match up the symbols on the map. We had to get into groups of Four, so we can play relays with each other. First we had, two groups on one side, and the other two groups on the other side. From each two groups from each side they had to go against each other. The game we were playing was matching up the symbols. Who ever wins goes again, until theirs an a official winner.
