Strong Super League contingent named in Tonga squad

Tonga have named their squad for the forthcoming Pacific Qualifier with Cook Islands, and there are some names included which are very familiar to Super League spectators.

Former Wales international Tyson Frizell has been called up by the Tongans, despite recent assurances he would be playing for the Welsh.

In Februay, Frizell was photographed wearing a Wales shirt, and seemed committed to the Celtic cause.

“I’m looking forward to coming back into the Wales camp following the NRL season and I’m determined to help Wales reach the 2017 World Cup,” he said.

“I’ve spoken to Bob and John as well as some of the Wales players and management from 2014 and they’ve told me about the fantastic team spirit that existed during last year’s camp.

“It certainly looks like that Wales Rugby League are going places and I can’t wait to add to my caps total.”

Ukuma Ta’ai of Huddersfield, Atelea Vea of St Helens, Michael Oldfield from Catalans Dragons, and Mickey Paea of Hull FC, as well as Fuifui Moimoi of Leigh Centurions, are included.

The game takes place in Australia, at Campbelltown Stadium, NSW, on October 17
