GREAT BRITAIN RUGBY LEAGUE LIONS TOUR & OCEANIA CUP 2019

NZ v TONGA

Sat 22 June 2019
Mt Smart Stadium

Tickets on sale now

2019 is set to be a blockbuster year for International Rugby League down under, with the return of the Great Britain Rugby League Lions and the ground-breaking new RLIF Oceania Cup.

It all kicks off in June, with the match everyone has been waiting for coming to Mt Smart. The last time the Kiwis played Mate Ma’a Tonga was a seismic match up that launched the Tongan superstars into the top tier of International Rugby League.

This epic match is also the opening test of the new RLIF Oceania Cup – a new competition that will pit together Australia, New Zealand and Tonga in Pool A and Fiji, Samoa and PNG in Pool B - in a celebration of the very best of Pacific Rugby League.

2019 will also see the return of the Great Britain Rugby League Lions, playing a three test series in New Zealand.
