They say twins share a Special Connection no one understands. This vid shows our twins George & Wes Lolo doing just that. They just know how each other play, its nice to have them on our side. And Blessed that they are always ripping in everytime they are on the field.
Same set, Same Side, Different Games.
First game was VS Cook Islands and then again VS South Africa.
Actually the same 4 players doing the double take.
Mike Filimona plays the Ball, Tamati Ulukita the Hooker ...and the twins with the finish. #DeJaVu

Blessed to have Miss Niue Aotearoa - Valencia Lama in the NSW Niue Community. Congrats on your successful fundraiser today. Many thanks for being a huge supporter of NRLA. Your journey of discovering true beauty is an inspiration, together with your shining example of strength & encouragement to Young Women. All the best on your continued reign as MNA🌺⭐🇳🇺
In many different places, as We Stood In Silence to Remember the Fallen,
🌺🌺We were deeply saddened to hear the passing of a Brother/Father/ & Friend. Our deepest sympathies go out to the Papua Family🌺🌺
......"Thank you, to guardians unknown, for offering yourselves for all of us, that we may keep freedom... Our home.
Niueans 3rd Division 28th Maori Battalion Most of them had never worn shoes let alone marched in grey coats on a cold, wet battlefield.
Most of them couldn't s...peak English.
In October 1915, 150 Niueans sailed with the New Zealand Maori Contingent to take part in a war they knew very little about.
The men served in Egypt and France.
Niue had a population of about 4000 people at the time.
They Volunteered to join the War🤕
When you look at how many people lived in Niue in those days, that's huge.
Much Respect Lest we Forget 🕇❤🇳🇺"
