Digicel is happy to be part of the supporting the Under 15 & Under 17 on their Tour to Australia. This Tour will showcase the kids talent that we have in Tonga with the hope that kids travelling will be able to be recognised for Junior NRL Clubs or school scholarships.
Team were chosen base on the junior rugby League Club tournament, which help the association choose each team members. This is the first time we have run a Junior Club Rugby League Tournament in Tonga and was proudly sponsored by EM Jones. This is part of the Junior Rugby League development and pathways program to grow participation in Rugby League as a sport in Tonga.
This is the first time we have sent Junior Teams to Australia to play Rugby League. The Team will depart Tonga on Tuesday 14th August and return back to Tonga on Wednesday 22nd August.
The Digicel Team was able to meet & greet the Team yesterday at the Atele ground during practise to gift the team with branded merchandise such as Digicel caps & string bags. Digicel has also able to reach out and assist the team with their rugby shorts and jersey for the tour.
