Tongans in USA go another extra mile for the Ikale-Tahi

0

Kāinga Tonga in San Francisco after donating tracksuits and clothing early this week for the Tonga National Rugby Team have again come together to hold a fund raising for  the team members.

The donation of clothing was prompted by the wintry condition of the Treasure Island where the team are currently having their training squad camp.

The team were unaware of the weather condition.

A koniseti would be held this Friday 31 at 7:00pm BJM Hall, 21160 Ocean View Dr, Hayward.  The proceeds of the fundraising will be shared among the members.

Ikale-Tahi team are in San Francisco in preparation for their next PNC match against the Canadians on June 8.

They will leave on June 4 and return to Los Angeles on June 9 to play against USA.
