9 September 2018 - Head coach Laauli Rudy Leavasa has retained his starting line up that defeated Namibia in their final pool game of the World Rugby U20 Trophy 2018, for their final against Pacific rivals Fiji U20 tomorrow.

 

"We believe that we have found the right combination that we've been looking for and we hope that everything will go according to our game plan."  Laauli said.

 

"As we all know, Fiji is a very quality side and we can not afford to make any silly mistakes or we will get punished."

 

Both teams remain unbeaten and topped their respective pools, winning all their matches with a tremendous flair of Pacific island rugby style.

 

If Samoa succeeds in their quest tomorrow, they will make it three from three in the Romanian capital after winning the trophy on two previous occasions, first in 2011 and again in 2016.

 

The game is scheduled tomorrow, Monday 10 September at 05:00 am (local time).
