Ruby Smith-Fifita supports her dad

Tongan rugby players have had a major impact on the game in New Zealand. In October 2002 the North Otago team won the third division competition, defeating Horowhenua–Kapiti in the final at Ōamaru. Here three-year-old Ruby Smith-Fifita supports her father, the Tongan winger Pila Fifita, who is shown about to score the first of his three tries.
