Tonga In 2007 the Tongans finally showed the world what they always knew that they had what it took to be a great rugby team. They had a commanding presence in the 2007 Rugby World Cup pool stages and looked to pull off not one but two grand upsets by nearly beating the Springboks, eventual tournament winners, and playing England very tough. After years of frustration at not living up to their potential, they broke out in style. Despite low budgets and shoddy hotels Tonga went out and played with the heart of a lion and the desire to provide their country with something to proud of. They did not disappoint.
