Tonga were first to get on the board through a penalty to Fe’ao Hui but the visitors soon evened the ledger through the boot of Dion Taumata, who kicked two conversions and a penalty for the match.
King’s School hooker Hugh Roach crashed over in the 24th minute to extend the Australians lead to 10-3 which they held until the 46th minute when St Augustine’s College centre Malietoa Hingano scored on the back of a stolen line-out ball.
Brisbane State High School winger Chris Feauai-Sautia took the Test out of the reach of the Tongans with a fine second-half try at the school of former All Blacks captain Sean Fitzpatrick.
