Last week's shock 28-22 victory over the Kiwis saw Tonga finish ahead of New Zealand in the pool stage of the World Cup, setting up a clash with Lebanon for a spot in the tournament semi-finals.

Speaking to media today, versatile back David Fusitu'a says that Tonga are in great spirits ahead of the knockout clash.

"It's been great, we're enjoying each other's company during the week and during training," he said.

"There's a good spirit in the team."

"When we're off the field there's always good laughs, but when we're on the field - it's business."
