Tonga VS Canada

After their expected but proud loss to the mighty All Blacks, the terrifying Tongan team-Ikale Tahi were up for their second game against the fearsome Canadians.

The game was about to start and the two rivals walk side by side onto the field with determined looks on their faces. The captains Finau Maka (Tonga) and Pat Riordan (Canada) head off to the coin toss, Tonga wins it and decides that they want to be kicked off to. The referee blows his whistle and the first crucial 40 minutes begin.

About 10-15 minutes into the game, Canada scores the first try and the score, disappointingly for Tonga, heads off to 7-0. The intense game carries on. Around about halftime, Siale Piutau (Tongan player) has a try set up for him, goes for it and scores a beauty. Tonga scores a try yet the tough Canadians were still leading 10-7.

The ref blows his whistle and halftime ends. Another crucial 40 minutes up on the clock. In that time, some impressive tries were scored by both the terrifying Tongans and their fearsome opponents the Canadians. Approximately 70 minutes into the game, the Tongans end up leading the Canadians 20-18. If they hold up their solid defence line, Tonga can win this.

Unfortunately the Canadians manage to execute a superb try and the score changes to 25-20 to the Canadians. You could feel the tension build up as the Tongans try with such might to score a try, the last minute's up and the extremely intense game finishes with Canada winning by just five points!!

Awesome performances were displayed by both teams.

What a great piece of writing Sela. You have given an interesting and impartial view of the game. I was most disappointed for Tonga in the last game. Here's hoping they manage to pull off a win next time.

Keep up the wonderful writing

Hey Sela,
That was a great post. You are right the game was really intense. It was pretty hard knowing that Tonga was leading at half time and then loosing at the end. (NO OFFENCE). Besides from that I really enjoyed reading your writing. Great Work.
