Guttenbeil: Farewell match
Tonga have just 18 players available from their original squad of 24 for their final game of the World Cup against Scotland on Saturday.
Jim Dymock's pool of players has been depleted by injuries to key players Michael Jennings and Willie Manu, while Fuifui Moimoi and Taniela Tuaki remain unavailable due to eligibility rulings.
The Scots will be going into the game on the back of their first World Cup victory against Fiji and Dymock will not be under-estimating them.
"Just like when we prepared for Ireland, we won't be treating Scotland lightly," said Dymock.
"The Scotland team has been very passionate, with a real will to win and we intend to approach the game exactly the same."
The match - a dead rubber - will mark the farewell appearance of former Castleford captain Awen Guttenbeil, who is retiring, and Tonga's side also includes Wakefield hooker Tevita Leo-Latu.
