Tonga Men win bronze
The second set saw the Tonga get and early lead only for a brace of mistakes from Tio Fonohema gave New Caledonia the lead. Tonga were able to keep just ahead of New Caledonia with Tio Fonohema providing the goods, smashing and placing the ball out of reach of New Caledonia to finally win the set and match 21-16. Kama Manulevu was pivotal in Tonga's win with his breathtaking saves at the back and his ability to keep the ball in play. Jonathan Taoupoulou had a great match with strong smashes and line shots against Tonga.
Congratulations to Tonga for winning the Bronze and to New Caledonia for a well played match.
