Throughout the world keeping political interference out of sport is explicitly written into good Constitutions of sports bodies and their regulators. ​Tonga Rugby​ is no exception, but for the past two and a half years I have observed the intertwining of the ​TRU Leadership,​ in its quest for financial gain and personal advantage, and a ​political party​ in its quest to capture votes. I hope by sharing my experience it may bring more awareness of what is actually happening to Rugby Union in Tonga. By 'Inoke Afeaki.
