The Tonga Australian Football Association (TAFA) was founded on Australia Day (Jan 26) 2003 when Australian expatriates Tim Valente and Mark Korsten became involved in a vicious bragging competition. It was settled the next day at 7am with severe hangovers at Teufaiva (pronounced "TAFA FOREVER") Stadium.
A truce was called at approximately 7:12am, but not before a couple of hard-case pipehittin' Tongan's had come out of the stands with back-to-front baseball caps, goofy grins and a mouthful of "What gives man!"

"I think the biggest thing at the moment, the AFL and the players association along with the football clubs are doing at the moment is really creating environments that are very welcoming to Aboriginal players. And we're seeing a lot of indigenous players that are getting drafted from anywhere in Australia which is fantastic and that's the way it should be."
