(NZ) – Some residents in Ōtahuhu have taken to social media to complain about loud and repeated vehicle horns at the South Auckland suburb this evening .

They said they had work in the morning and could not sleep while others responded and said they enjoyed it.

Traffic in Great South Road regularly came to a halt after some drivers drove slowly and yelling at others about the victory.

Some commentators on Facebook jokingly told them off for breaching Sunday taboo referring to Tonga’s own Sabbath Law which ban making noises and social activities on Sundays.

Ōtahuhu had been the centre of celebrations for Tongans in New Zealand whenever it comes to international events such as rugby tournaments that involved Tongan teams.

They called it Nuku’alofa referring to the capital town of Tonga.

The stir had been caused by Tongans who were celebrating the Mate Ma’a Tonga victory in Cairns today, Sunday 29.

The Mate Ma’a Tonga team overwhelmed the Scotish Bravehearts 50 – 4.

“With Taumalolo running riot Tonga scored seven tries in the first 40 minutes and went within an Ata Hingano conversion of keeping pace with the clock, leading 38-0 at half-time,” the NRL website has reported.

“No team has ever scored 38 points in the first half of an international and come out in the second term and played better…” it said.

Mate Ma’a Tonga 50 (Michael Jennings 3, Daniel Tupou 2, Jason Taumalolo, Sika Manu, Peni Terepo, Ata Hingano tries; Sio Siua Taukeiaho 6, Ata Hingano 1 goals) def.
