Happy Birthday Tonga!


Happy Birthday Tonga!


To celebrate Tonga National Day, a salute to Vaai “Jason” Taumalolo, an inspiring leader who kickstarted the Pacific Rugby league Revolution when he opted to represent ‘Mate Ma’a Tonga‘ in the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.

Tonga went from second string to world powerhouse as other Tongan NRL players followed Taumalolo, culminating in their historic win over the Kangaroos in 2019. #SipiTau #Leadership
