The Friendly Islanders suffered their second loss in the four-team tournament at the ANZ Stadium in Laucala Bay, Suva yesterday after being thrashed 50-0 by Samoa A.Lolohea’s boys simply had no answer to the Samoan onslaught in an entertaining, open-style game.”Yes. It’s a disappointing performance but I’m all right with that,” Tonga A head coach Isi Fatani said.”We have a lot of new players from U21.”This is the first time for most to play in a tournament like this. This is new to them.”But in the long run, we will maintain them and give these young boys exposure for next year. In two years, they will get better.”Tongan right wing Atelea Moa and captain Lolohea were among a handful of players, who played well for the side. Speedy Moa put on a try-saving tackle against a Samoan forward and showed good vision as well. In the first half, he set up a sure try for Mateo Malupo but the big outside centre lost the ball in contact.Winless Tonga A will face Fiji Warriors in its last game on Thursday.”I think Fiji is the best team in this tournament. We will try our best to see how we can beat them,” Fatani said.In round one, Tonga was beaten by Junior Japan 28-6.The Tonga A-Fiji Warriors game kick-off is at 6pm.
