More stars sign up for Tonga'uiha Testimonial Match

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

The Tiny Testimonial Match has attracted a wealth of domestic and international talent befitting a veteran of two Rugby World Cups and nearly 200 appearances in the black, green and gold.

Bringing down the curtain on another season at Franklin's Gardens will be some old friends of the club and some regular (and not so regular) foes from other teams.


Confirmed Pacific Islanders include: Saimone Taumoepeau, Ephraim Taukafa, Viliami Ma'asi, Deacon Manu, Logovi'i Mulipola, Steve Mafi, Paino Hehea, Junior Paramore, Junior Poluleligaga, Viliami Iongi, Taniela Moa, Alesana Tuilagi, Hudson Tonga'uiha, Kameli Ratuvou, Suka Hufanga, Jone Yabaki, Keni Fisilau, Finau Maka, Tevita Vaikana, Joe Nanai, William Helu and James Johnston.


They will face a Saints squad which will include the following players: Jon Phillips, Ben Whetstone, Ryan Lamb, Chris Wyles, James Ross, Chris Budgen, Matt Volland, Shaun Brady, Mark Soden, Matt Stewart, Ben Lewitt, Alan Dickens, Mark Hopley, Paul Diggin, Simon Emms, Dan Richmond, Luke Myring, Emyr Lewis, Nic Strauss, John Brooks, Simon Foale, Chris Johnson and Christian Short.


Soane himself, along with George Pisi and Samu Manoa, will play a half for each team. Unfortunately Bruce Reihana, who had been returning from France for the game, has had to withdraw.
