Sea Eagles Prop Addin Fonua-Blake has been named in the train-on squad for Tonga's upcoming Test match against Australia at Mount Smart Stadium on October 20.
The 22-year-old has been rewarded after a successful 2018 season with the Sea Eagles appearing 24 times averaging 126.5 running metres per game.
Despite the playing for the Kiwis at the World Cup in 2017, the powerful front rower decided to pledge his allegiance to the Island nation earlier in the year.
The final Mate Ma'a Tonga squad will be announced next month before entering a 10-day training camp.
Tickets for the Test will be available from nrl.com/tickets.
