Vaea Fifita will make his debut for Tonga in Saturday’s international Test against Spain in Malaga.

Born in Tonga, the Scarlets forward has 11 All Blacks caps to his name, but this will be the first time he will represent the country of his birth. To make it extra special he will pack down alongside his older brother Leva in the second row.

He is set to be joined by Sam Lousi for the remainder of Tonga’s autumn series. The lock is currently sitting out a ban following his red card against Zebre.
