Rugby News Fotuali’i leads Samoa in Tbilisi

Kahn Fotuali’i will captain Samoa for the third time this autumn when he leads the side out on Saturday afternoon, the scrum-half joined by fellow Saint Ken Pisi as their European tour ends in Georgia.

Having gone down to Ireland in Dublin in week one, the Samoans also suffered a narrow 19-20 defeat to a star-studded French Barbarians side in Clermont seven days later.

Skipper Fotuali’i scored one of three tries for his side in that game, however, and will be hoping to end the three-match series on a high against a Georgian side still hurting from their last-minute defeat to a USA side including Samu Manoa.
