Sport: Tonga looking to keep rankings pace

11:43 am on 20 November 2012

With just a couple of weeks until the Rugby World Cup seedings draw, Tonga is hoping to make a late surge.

The 'Ikale Tahi remained steady at 12th in the world after picking up their first win on tour against the USA at the weekend.

They round out their Northern Tour against Scotland in Aberdeen this weekend and winger Fetu'u Vainikolo says it's another great opportunity to strengthen their ranking.

"That's the main reason why we are doing this to keep us up there to make it easier for us in the future but, right now, we've just got to focus on our job to go out there on Saturday and front up."
