Tonga Rugby Union launched a Red Friday Campaign, starting from tomorrow Friday 1 September, in support of the 'Ikale Tahi team for the upcoming Rugby World Cup.

The campaign aims to rally the support of Tongans for the 'Ikale Tahi, both in the lead-up, and during the pool games in the RWC in France.

The concept is to bring back Red Fridays, where they ask everyone in Tonga to wear red, every Friday between now and the end of the World Cup.
