From over 800 kids, Tofilau was selected by the great Sir John Kirwan, who addressed the rugby mad kid himself.

Tofilau and his family were flown over to Japan so they could be a part of this experience of a lifetime but Hagibis forced the cancellation of the match, leaving the 11-year-old devestated.

Typhoon Hagibis has caused major closure around the country, with multiple flights cancelled.

Those cancellations came as a blessing in disguise for young Tofilau as the ball boy for the Tonga-USA could not get to Japan.

Which meant an ecstatic Tofilau gets his shot in today's clash between Tonga and USA.
