Kia ora, good morning and wlecome to Newshub's live coverage of the World Cup pool B clash between Ireland and Tonga in Nantes.

One of the pre-tournament favourites, Ireland opened their campaign with a bang last weekend against Romania, but will face a much sterner test against the Tongans.

The Pacific Islanders have arguably fielded their stongest ever line-up at a World Cup to date, with the additions of former All Blacks Salesi Piutau, Vaea Fifita, Malakai Fekitoa, Augustine Pulu and George Moala.

The only Pasifika nation yet to advance past pool play at a World Cup, the 'Ikale Tahi have a golden opportunity to make a bold statement against the heavyweight Irish.

We'll have all of the action from 7am, Sunday.
