Both matches in the Trans-Tasman Bledisloe Cup battle between the New Zealand and Australian national rugby teams will be broadcast live in Tonga over the next two weekends, Digicel TV announced today.

The first of the Bledisloe Cup Tests will be played this Sunday 11 October at 4:00pm.

The second is on Sunday 18 October at 4:00pm, in what will be the first afternoon Bledisloe Cup Tests in recent history.

Digicel Tonga, Acting CEO, Ms. Ragigia Dawai, said, “Digicel is delighted to see international rugby return as this is the first Test match since the COVID-19 lockdown and Digicel TV and PlayGo app customers will get to watch the highly anticipated Trans-Tasman clash Live, featuring the All Blacks and Wallabies.”

“I look forward to a super-charged clash. The Wallabies have a new coach, while the All Blacks will be out to retain the prized silverware for yet another year and defend their turf in Wellington this week and at Eden Park, Auckland next weekend. And what’s more important is that the All Blacks head into the tests on a 23-game, 19-year winning streak on home soil against the Wallabies.”

Apart from the upcoming Bledisloe Cup Tests, Digicel TV is also showing National Rugby League finals, AFL finals, NBA finals, NFL finals, IPL Cricket and the popular English Football Premier League competition.
