Ben Tāmeifuna named in 'Īkale-Tahi's squad for Europe

Auckland-born Waikato prop Ben Tāmeifuna has been named in Tonga’s squad for tests against Georgia, the United States and Scotland, it has been confirmed today.

The 23-year old Tongan, who had been called into All Blacks’ training squad in 2012, was last month suspended for five weeks for pushing a referee out of his way during a provincial championship match.

Tāmeifuna will join his uncle ‘Alisona Taumālolo, who also represented the Chiefs in Super Rugby, in the ‘Īkale-Tahiʻs 31 squad.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
