Four Leicester Tigers players called up by Tonga for Autumn Internationals
Leicester Tigers will be without their quartet of Tonga internationals for at least two Premiership matches, reports BBC Radio Leicester.
Tigers initially believed that star player Telusa Veainu along with Sione Kalamafoni Valentino Mapapalangi and Afa Pakalani would not be selected for the autumn internationals.
However, they have now been called up for games against Barbarians, Japan and Romania.
The quartet will miss Premiership games against Sale and Worcester, as well as Friday’s Anglo-Welsh Cup match at Bath.
