Kaufusi brothers named for Tonga

FELISE and Patrick Kaufusi have been rewarded for their strong start to the NRL season with selection to the Tongan squad for this weekend's test against Samoa.  

Following in their brother Antonio's footsteps both will play after nominating for the team before the squad was selected.  

Felise has been picked at prop for the contest with Patrick chosen on the bench.  

If both play it will be Felise's second appearance and Patrick's first for the country.  

With Tonga also qualifying for the World Cup next year in Australia and New Zealand it will be an opportunity for both to impress ahead of the tournament.  

They will take on Samoa at 7.40pm on Saturday night at Parramatta Stadium.  

More to come.
