Broncos coach Tony Rea is delighted for his number seven:
"It's great news for him and he'll do a fine job. He is the current Kiwi scrum half and has got better as a player this season so in my mind he was always going to retain his Kiwi shirt."
Coming to London was a big decision for Tommy and he has made an instant impact."
He's an exciting player to watch but he is also a great team-man. I took him off with ten to go against Leeds when the game was obviously gone for us. There was little use risking him at that point in the game when the Test selections were imminent."
He didn't like it one bit. To paraphrase, he said to me: "Tony, please don't do that again. I'm here to play for these boys, not keep my Test shirt."
I'm pleased for him. It's also a reflection of what our team has achieved, so it's good for London Broncos as well."
People have seen what this team is capable of. Forget what happened to us at Leeds last Saturday. These guys will make it one heck of a show against St Helens."
I know they will aim up and I know Tommy will want to fly out for the Test on the back a polished performance against St Helens."
