The Tongan rugby league team is grabbing sports headlines across the region for their feats both on and off the field.

The team is undefeated after two rounds of the World Cup and head into a top of the group clash with New Zealand this weekend.

Its supporters have struck an awesome sight, whether it be the huge gathering at Auckland Airport to welcome the team a week ago or the capacity crowd in Hamilton for their win over Samoa.
