Eels duo named for Tonga

Eels duo Peni Terepo and Michael Jennings have been named in the official team lists for Mate Ma’a Tonga to take on the Australia Kangaroos this Saturday (20 October) in their Test at Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland.

The Eels pair are in a side that features a handful of changes from the mid-year Samoa Test. Blue & Gold forward Manu Ma’u is one of the changes, missing this upcoming Test clash, after suffering a facial fracture injury in the June Test against Samoa that ruled him out for the remainder of the 2018 season.

The Kangaroos also have a few changes to their side that lost to New Zealand on Saturday.

Kick off is from Mt Smart Stadium at 5:45pm on Saturday 20 October.

Good luck to the Blue & Gold boys involved!
