Tonga seems to be doing everything possible to try and keep Jason Taumalolo from playing for the Kiwis again. Taumalolo alongside three other former Kiwi internationals have Tongan rugby league competitions named after them.

Tonga have named their national competition 'The Jason Taumalolo cup'. How are we supposed to compete with that.... he's basically their national hero!

Along with Taumalolo, Manu Vatuvei, Solomona Kata and Tuimoala Lolohea will have age-restricted leagues named after them.
