Jennings and Tatola in Tonga squad ahead of historic test

South Sydney Rabbitohs Robert Jennings and Junior Tatola are back in the Mate Ma'a Tonga squad ahead of the historic test against Australia in Auckland on Saturday 20 October.

Winger Jennings and forward Tatola both made their debuts for Tonga earlier this year in the Pacific test in a big win for Mate Ma'a against Toa Samoa.

Jennings and Tatola join an extended squad featuring big-name players like David Fifita and Jason Taumalolo.

The South Sydney youngsters impressed on their international debuts, with Tatola even bagging a try, and both will be pushing for a selection in the final 17 ahead of a massive test against the Kangaroos.
