I'll have to get along to this. 

I remember a friend going to watch the same two teams play in Korea a few years ago and I think Tonga won 76-0. Not sure why they are playing in Auckland. I would have thought both countries (especially Korea) could do with the game being in their own backyard to help promote some interest in the country. I'm guessing though that the game was supposed to be in Tonga but they can get good support in Auckland and will probably save money. They will also cut crime in McGhehan Close for half a day.

Korea/Tonga face off in Auckland
Korean and Tongan rugby fans in New Zealand are expected to turn out in force when the two sides play their Rugby World Cup qualifying match in Auckland on Saturday 10 February. The match will be played at Waitemata Park in Henderson, Auckland, with kick off at 2.35pm. The winner of the match will qualify directly for World Cup and will join England, South Africa, Samoa and USA in Pool A. NZRU Deputy Chief Executive Steve Tew said the NZRU and Auckland RFU were hosting the match on behalf of the IRB. "I'm sure the Tongan and Korean communities in the Auckland region will get out and support their teams," said Tew. "The match will also give all New Zealand rugby fans the opportunity to see two international teams in action, competing for the chance to play in the Rugby World Cup," he said.
