Tongan Rugby League Fans Protest In Sydney After Being Knocked Out Of World Cup Tongan Fans Protesting in Sydney's CBD

Tongan Rugby League fans have held a peaceful protest in Sydney, after being controversially knocked out of the World Cup.

Around 80 of them have marched near World Square in Sydney's CBD on Tuesday night, chanting and singing in a protest against Mate Ma'a Tonga's 20-18 loss to England in the semi-finals of the Rugby League World Cup.

Some of them were holding banners calling for equality for all Tier-2 nations.

It followed a controversial disallowed try by Andrew Fifita that Tongan fans claimed should have been reviewed by the video referee.

The Sydney march follows two nights of similar protests by fans in Auckland, New Zealand.
