Tonga Rugby League in chaos over money and power play allegations in Mate Ma'a Tonga

A war of words broke out this week between Mate Ma'a Tonga players and their board following the sacking of coach Kristian Woolf.

The events have sparked outrage in the Tongan community and many of the team's players threatened to boycott the World Cup 9s and end of season tests if Mr Woolf wasn't reinstated. Many of their fans are backing their calls for the Chairman and secretary of the board to step down.

Chairman George Koloamatangi has hit back saying the players are misinformed about the situation and Mr Woolf had to go.
