"If I play against Samoa...that would be weird but hopefully, I won't come across that problem", he joked.
Kiwi winger Katelyn Vaha'akolo, who is of Maori and Tongan heritage said it's also been a dilemma for her.
"I think it's very challenging to face my own culture this weekend. If I play for Tonga this week, I will be ineligible for the world cup this year, but in the future", said Vaha'akolo.
"I'm hoping to represent Tonga, that's one of my goals. It's challenging but, in the meantime, go the Maori", she joked.
When asked about who she would be supporting in the men's game.
Vaha'akolo said, "I'm supporting Tonga of course. Go Mate Ma'a Tonga!"
Preparations are underway for the Kiwi Ferns who face Tonga this Saturday at Mount Smart Stadium.
The test serves as a warmup for the upcoming Rugby League World Cup this September.
