Tonga Rugby Union: a team to watch
Tonga Rugby Union has been going strong - in a very literal sense - since the game was introduced to the Pacific islands in the early 20th century. Although it took quite some time for the national team to be recognised on the world stage, in recent years, they have put on increasingly impressive performances.

The only way is up for Tonga Rugby Union
The first official test for Tonga Rugby Union came in 1924 against neighbouring Fiji. For most of the next fifty years, they played in and around the Pacific and Oceania, but in 1974, they undertook their first European tour to Great Britain. Since then, they have gradually been gaining recognition around the world: they may be a small nation, but they are mighty fighters. Some of the most memorable moments for the Tonga Rugby Union team have been beating South Africa in a pool match of the 2007 Rugby World Cup (which South Africa eventually went on to win), defeating France 19-14 in the 2011 World Cup and making their first major win on European soil against Scotland in 2012. By 2018, they had risen through the ranks to be placed number 12 in the world - ahead even of Italy and their nearby rivals, Samoa. With absolutely all to play for, Tonga Rugby Union tickets will guarantee you an exciting and suspense-filled match.

Red or white depending on whether they are playing at home or away, the Tonga Rugby Union shirt incorporates beautiful designs like those found on some items of Tongan traditional dress. Another very traditional aspect of the team is the Sipi Tau - the war dance with which they begin each match. Other teams such as the New Zealand National Rugby Union Team and Samoa Rugby Union also perform similar rituals - it makes for an impressive display of power and intent before a match kicks off! Incorporating extremely talented players who play for clubs across the globe, the Tonga Rugby Union team is an impressive line-up of young, strong and extremely passionate players. From the entertainment of the Sipi Tau to the inspiration of watching their determination on the pitch, this is a unique rugby experience that proves it doesn't always have to be about the Big Six.
