Northampton Saints duo Sam Matavesi and Ahsee Tuala have been named in the starting line ups for Fiji and Samoa respectively as the two countries take to the field in New Zealand this weekend.
Having got their summer campaign starting with back-to-back clashes with Maori All Blacks in recent weeks, Samoa take on Tonga in a Rugby World Cup qualifier in Auckland on Saturday (10 July, kick-off 4.30pm local time) – with 31-year-old Tuala running out at fullback to earn his 23rd cap for the Manu.
Meanwhile, hooker Matavesi will claim a 16th international cap as he starts in the first of Fiji's two Tests against the All Blacks this month, as the Flying Fijians get their summer campaign started in Dunedin on Saturday (kick-off 7pm local time).
