    Tonga's suspended rugby league board have fired another shot at their players, claiming they shouldn't be able to don the national jersey in matches against Great Britain and Australia

    Tonga's suspended rugby league board have fired another shot at their players, claiming they shouldn't be able to don the national jersey in matches against Great Britain and Australia

    - article from www.rugbyleague.co.nz

    The under-fire TNRL has hit out following the naming of a full-strength Tonga invitational XIII labelling them a rebel squad.

    In a strongly-worded statement, TNRL boss George Koloamatangi also claimed the matches couldn't be given test match status while the board remained suspended.

    It comes after the long player boycott of the country finally came to an end this week, with the likes of Andrew Fifita and Jason Taumalolo named under returned coach Kristian Woolf.
