Tickets are now on sale for the Queen’s Birthday Weekend representative showdown between Auckland and the Tonga New Zealand Residents at Mount Smart Stadium.

In addition to the feature match, which will see the two teams play for the Mann Cup, the Auckland Maori U20 will take on the Toa Samoa Invitational U20 in a curtain-raiser to the game on Saturday, June 2.

Tickets are just $10 for adults, $6 for under-18s and seniors over-65, with children under five free. Family passes (two adults + three juniors) can be purchased for $24. All prices include booking fee.

Auckland Rugby League clubs will benefit directly from the proceeds of ticket sales, with every purchaser able to nominate a local club of their choice, or the Auckland, Samoa and Tonga Rugby League bodies, for a cash rebate.

The Mann Cup will be the first time a Tongan side has played in Auckland since Mate Ma’a Tonga’s stunning charge at the Rugby League World Cup last year, which saw a capacity crowd flock to Mount Smart Stadium for the semi-final against England.


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.
