Ireland v Tonga RECAP | World Cup

READERS’ FORUM: Welcome to our live coverage of the World Cup Pool B match between Ireland and Tonga at Stade de la Beaujoire in Nantes.


Johnny Sexton will have a chance to set a new overall points record for Ireland.

The 38-year-old flyhalf is just nine points off his predecessor Ronan O’Gara’s points mark of 1,083 after scoring 24 in last Saturday’s opening 82-8 rout of Romania.

Tonga head coach Toutai Kefu has included four former All Blacks in Tonga’s starting XV: fullback Salesi (Charles) Piutau, centre Malakai Fekitoa, scrumhalf Augustine Pulu and No.8 Vaea Fifita.
