Fiji will host the Tonga Residents side to 3 matches next month.
This has been confirmed by the Fiji National Rugby League Head Coach Brandon Costin.
The 3 matches against the Tonga Residents will be held on June 1st, 5th and 8th.
At the moment only the venue for the second and third matches is the ANZ Stadium but FNRL is yet to confirm where the first match will be held.
Vodafone Fiji Bati Coach Brandon Costin says local players will have a chance to make the Bati side against Lebanon in Australia next month.
“It’s a really good opportunity for the local players playing in the Vodafone Cup, to play in a representative squad against a strong Tongan team. This game will be the platform for which local players can show how skillful and talented they are in order to try and represent Fiji Bati against Lebanon.”
Costin says he hopes to see some of the players that played in the Vodafone Cup this year will be able to make it to the Fiji Bati side that will be playing against Lebanon.
