10:42 am on 2 July 2009

The Junior All Blacks first five, Ryan Crotty, says the Pacific Nations Cup has been a huge advantage for the Pacific teams.

The JBs who have retained the Pacific Nations Cup won by the New Zealand Maori team last year will play Tonga this afternoon in their final match.

Crotty says the tournament which has been held over the past three years says has been good for Pacific players.

"The halfback for Fiji as come along in leaps and bounds in this tournament its really good for the Pacific nations, we've had a couple of good crowds when we played Fiji so everyone gets in behind it and its a pretty good tournament"

The JBs return home on Saturday.
