Mate Ma’a Tonga fans flock to St Mary’s for fan open day

HUNDREDS of fans turned out at St Mary’s Leagues Club last night for an open training session and meet-and-greet with Tonga’s rugby league stars.

NRL stars Feleti Mateo, Tony Williams, David Fifita were just some of the players on hand to sign autographs while coaching staff including legends Andrew Johns and John Hopoate posed for photos.

The session kicked off at 3.30pm before players came to meet the fans at 5.30pm.

DJs kept the party atmosphere going throughout while the merchandise stall was overwhelmed with demand for Tonga jerseys, tracksuits and hats.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

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.
