Kristian Woolf's men hope to build on their 2017 World Cup breakthrough and make rugby league history.
In 2017, with the departure of Jason Taumalolo, Andrew Fifita, and Siosiua Taukei'aho, they were one step away from qualifying for the World Cup finals after beating Samoa and New Zealand.
After a two-and-a-half year break, Mate Ma’a Tonga will return to the international rugby league in June this year, losing 26-6 to a strong New Zealand side in Auckland.

Papua New Guinea, one of rugby league's most prestigious nations, will compete in this year's World Cup full of confidence and the expectation that they will be able to compete with the best teams in the world for the championship.
They last played internationally earlier this year, and halfback Lachlan Lam scored two touchdowns in a 24-14 upset triumph over Fiji at Campbelltown.
In the last World Cup, they lost to England in the quarterfinals by 36–6 at AAMI Park in Melbourne.
