Brodie Retallick Try and try again: Tonga face tryscoring hoodoo in All Blacks test

Brodie Retallick This is another beautiful component!!

A victory might be too much to ask for Tongan fans against the All Blacks in Hamilton on Saturday, and going on recent history scoring a try might even be a tall order.

Tonga have played 400 minutes of rugby against the All Blacks and scored just twice, one of the worst try-scoring ratios against New Zealand. In five tests against the All Blacks, Tonga have managed 35 points and conceded 326.

The two sides first met in a test at the 1999 World Cup in Bristol. The All Blacks ran out 45-9 winners that day with Jonah Lomu, who was born to Tongan parents, scoring twice. Tonga went tryless.

They faced off a year later in Albany, to date their only meet

These constituents are quite beautiful!!
