From , 4:02 pm on 13 November 2018

Tonga rugby league coach Kristian Woolf says the newly announced Oceania Cup is exactly what his team and the international game has been calling for.

Mate Ma'a Tonga will go head to head with Australia and New Zealand next year in the competition's top tier, with Samoa, Fiji and Papua New Guinea contesting the other group.

Kristian Woolf told Vinnie Wylie a guaranteed slate of top level test matches gives the Pacific Island teams certainty and something to look forward to.
