One of Leeds Rhinos star outside backs is set to miss some Super League action in the coming weeks after pledging his availability for Tonga in their upcoming Test with New Zealand.
According to rugby league reporter Ian Laybourn, Tui Lolohea has made his intentions to play for Tonga clear and is set to be included in the Mate Ma’a squad for the clash with the Kiwis a week on Saturday, meaning the stand off/fullback will miss the Rhinos clash with St Helens.
Tui Lolohea has put his hand up to play for Tonga against the Kiwis in Auckland on Saturday week and is set to be named on Wednesday in a 23-man squad for the opening match of the newly formed Oceania Cup. It means he will miss @leedsrhinos trip to @Saints1890
