NZ Company to renovate Tonga's Teufaiva Park
8:55 pm GMT+12, 11/01/2017, Tonga

A NZ construction company is the likely choice to carry out the renovation of the rugby field at Teufaiva to meet international standards. 

Tonga’s Deputy Prime Minister, Siaosi Sovaleni told Radio and Television Tonga News they're awaiting the final agreement between the company and the Ministry of Finance before work starts. 

This comes after CEO of Wales Rugby Union Martyn Phillipes told Planet Rugby that there is much to be completed by Tonga. 

Tonga is to host an international test match against Wales in July. 

DPM Sovaleni said government needs to ensure the bidding company will carry out the appropriate renovation work.

Renovation will also include maintenance of the changing rooms and toilet facilities which will be carried out by the local company. 

He said although invitation for bid was international, the requirement included a local partner.

A Welsh team was in Tonga to survey the facilities and was satisfied with medical services and accommodation venue.

Preparation work is underway and the Deputy Prime Minister is confident it will be completed in time before the scheduled international test match against Wales.
