Taumalolo turned his back on the chance to run out with the Kiwis in their June 23 clash with England in the United States, opting instead to make himself available for Tonga's one-off clash with Samoa in Campbelltown on the same day.

"Myself along with a number of other players, have recommitted to Tonga again because we are passionate about our heritage," he said.

"We also want to help make international rugby league stronger and the best way for us to do that is by making Tonga a competitive team internationally," Taumalolo said.

Taumalolo thanked the Tongan fans and his teammates for their efforts and support throughout the RLWC tournament.
