Watch Australia vs Tonga rugby league test live and free

Posted: 2 November 2019 2:42 pm

Tonga is out to beat the Kangaroos for the first time ever. You can watch the match on TV or live stream for free.

Australia and Tonga have only played once before, in a test match last year. There won't be any love lost between the two. Beginning with Andrew Fifita, several promising NRL players pledged their allegiance to Pacific island nation Tonga, turning their backs on the Kangaroos in the process.

Although the match will take place on neutral ground at Eden Park, expect a sea of red singing throughout for Tonga. Tonga's win over Great Britain last weekend was memorable but so too were the passionate vocal Tongan fans.

The Kangaroos come into this game after flexing their muscles over the Kiwis. Coach Mal Meninga would have been very pleased with his team's dominant performance. South Sydney Rabbitohs' Cameron Murray has been handed his Kangaroo's debut.

When is Australia vs Tonga?

Australia vs Tonga begins at 5:40pm AEDT on Saturday. The match follows clashes earlier in the day between New Zealand and Great Britain and Samoa and Fiji.

Australia vs Tonga team lists

Ben Hunt is the man to miss out, as Mal Meninga has opted for size on the Kangaroos bench bringing in Cameron Murray.

Tonga coach Kristian Woolf made some late adjustments to the Tonga team last week and could do so again. Broncos player Fanitesi Niu was one of those late call-ups and was phenomenal on debut. It'd be very harsh if he were to be left in the reserves following his performance.
