A look before the match
In the quarterfinals of the Rugby League World Cup, the best teams have been saved for last. This strategy has been very successful.
Tonga’s match against Samoa, another Pacific powerhouse, is a bet that is extremely difficult to call, in contrast to the other three quarters, all of which were clear-cut betting favorites for their respective teams.
Both teams have shown marked improvement since their disappointing opening performances (Samoa were trounced by England, while Tonga edged out Papua New Guinea), and this has set the stage for what promises to be a nail-biting showdown in Warrington on Sunday.
It will be a slight contrast in styles with the power of Tonga’s forwards going up against a silky spine from Samoa, but big games are often won in the arm-wrestle, and Samoa must demonstrate that they have the stomach for the fight after giving up against England.
At St. James’s Park a few weeks ago, England’s forwards bullied their Samoan counterparts, and Tonga coach Kristian Woolf will have identified that potential soft underbelly as an area to exploit for his team.
In the 19 matches that have taken place between the Polynesian powers in the past, each side has amassed nine victories. However, Tonga has a chance to reach ten victories first and clinch a spot in the semi-fial that will take place the following week.
