Tonga’s national rugby league team, also known as the Mate Ma’s, represents Tonga in the sport of rugby league. Their nickname, the Mate Ma’s, means “Die for Tonga” and shows complete dedication to where they come from and who they represent. Tonga was introduced to rugby league in the late eighties, when part of the Pacific Cup took place there. The national team, however, wasn’t formed until two years later, when they competed in the Pacific Cup in ’88 – their first time to compete on a national level.
The Mate Ma’s have participated in three World Cups since their first appearance in ’95 followed by the two after, not making it past the group stages in either of the three. Tonga will be playing again in the 2013 Rugby League World Cup this year. They have been placed in Group C/D, where they will be playing teams like Italy, Cook Islands and Scotland. Their chances to make it past the group stage this time around are looking high, especially since they are the highest ranking nation in their group, being at least within the top ten nations, while the other three are ranking only within the top twenty. Be there to watch the magic of players such as Epalahame Lauaki, Lopini Paea and Sam Moa live at the stadium! Buy your 2013 Rugby League World Cup tickets for Tonga here at Ticketbis!
