What do you guys make of their squads? I must say I've just had a look and they look pretty healty, some top quality players in both squads, I certainly wouldn't be too comfortable if England bump into either, especially Samoa with their NRL based players, and good players from SL too.

Tonga have the better back line I reckon. But I fancy Samoa to play Australia, unfortunately, in the semi-final. I would love to see Samoa play England in the semis.

Potential Tonga backline looks awesome with NRL stars Cooper Vuna (Newcastle Knights) & Taniela Tuiaki (Wests Tigers) on the wings and former Kangaroo Willie Tonga at centre alongside Penrith's Michael Jennings who was in the initial Kangaroo squad. Parramatta's Feleti Mateo should play at stand-off and has just been named on the bench in the NRL team of the year.

Forwards don't look to bad either with Antonio Kaufusi & Anthony Tupou who have featured for Australia in recent years plus Willie Manu and the 3 Anderson brothers.

Samoa will be in the semis beating France in the qualifier. I hope the Samoa Tonga game gets plenty of media coverage back home as there's a big rivalry there.

Then again, maybe Samoa have the better back line. Flip, this game it too close to call.

Waw, this is a must see match.

When you look at these two teams it's a joke how PNG have ended up in our group.

i cannot believe the ridiculous and irresponsible comments from Tonga Coach Jim Dymock... the guy is a clown... or maybe he's trying to ensure more people attend the game. There are Tongans living in Samoa and vice versa and we live as brothers and sisters. Perhaps Dymock should consider living in the islands for a while. Should be a great game though and we will be watching here in Samoa.
