Tonga names Katoa for Test series

Eli Katoa has been named to make his international debut for Tonga in the Pacific nations’s three-Test series against England. 

Following his first year with Melbourne Storm, Katoa quickly became a fan-favourite recording a career-best season with six tries, 12 line-breaks and a 92% take efficiency rating. 

The series gets underway at St Helens on October 22 followed by Tests at Huddersfield on October 28 and Leeds on November 4.
