Seven Roosters to Represent Heritage in 2022 Pacific Tests

Seven Roosters players will take the field for their respective nations for the 2022 Pacific Test matches, with International Rugby League returning for the first time since 2019 on Saturday, June 25.

Three Roosters – Co-Captain Siosiua Taukeiaho, Sitili Tupouniua and Daniel Tupou –  have been selected in the Mate Ma'a Tonga squad to face New Zealand, with Joseph Manu lining up for the Kiwis for a ninth appearance in the black and white.

In what is expected to be a thrilling encounter between two of the most passionate fanbases in international Rugby League, Tonga and New Zealand will kick-off at 3:20pm AEST.

Following the Samoa and Cook Islands Test at 5:40pm, Kevin Naiqama will captain the Fiji Bati against Lachlan Lam’s Papua New Guinea Kumuls at 7:50pm in the second match of a double header at Campbelltown Sports Stadium, with exciting youngster Vuate Karawalevu also named in the Fiji squad.
