Sport: PNG and Tonga name teams ahead of big clash

11:51 am on 16 October 2014

After a solid, confidence building performance against the Australian Prime Ministers 13 in Kokopo last Sunday, the PNG League side will be looking to build on their first up hit out against a Tongan team stacked with NRL talent.

Kumul Coaches Mal Meninga and Michael Marum have named the full 21-man squad which has been in camp for over 3 weeks to prepare for Sunday's clash, with the final 17 to be finalised prior to kick-off.

Meninga says they have a few niggling injuries to some key personnel that they want to monitor, treat and ensure they are fit.

Tonga have named a powerful team Ukuma Taai from Huddersfield in the UK the only non-NRL player in their 17 man squad.
