As the Rugby World Cup for 2023 inches closer, Seilala Mapusua and the Manu Samoa management team have announced their 32-man squad to represent Samoa. With one additional player still to be named, Moana Pasifika are pleased to announce that ten of their players have been selected.
After a promising series of tests against Japan, Fiji and Tonga, the Manu Samoa have two more games remaining against two formidable sides in Ireland and the Barbarians. These two additional tests will be another great opportunity for the Manu to form combinations on the field, as they prepare for a World Cup Pool that consists of Argentina, England, Japan and Chile.
Moana Pasifika’s ten representatives for Manu Samoa at this year’s Rugby World Cup in France are as follows:
St Peter’s College, Ponsony Ponies, Northcote Rugby, North Harbour NPC.
19 Caps- Moana Pasifika. 3 Caps – Manu Samoa.
Sapunaoa, Vailoa Palauli
Mt Albert Grammar, Ponsonby Ponies, Pukekohe Premiers, Counties Manukau NPC.
