Saints trio named in Samoa squad for Autumn tests

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

While five uncapped players enter the Samoan 33-man squad for their November tests, Saints trio Ace Tuala and Ken and George Pisi retain their spots.

With 33 Samoan caps between them, the trio join former teammate Kahn Fotualii for the Autumn international period, facing France, Georgia and Canada with their National side.

Having missed out on the 2015 Rugby World Cup, Tuala comes back into the squad looking to add to his 4 existing caps. After making his debut in 2014 against Canada and performing well in the 2015 Pacific Nations Cup, the full back has another chance to shine for his country.

The older of the brothers, George Pisi has racked up 19 appearances for his country since earning his first cap in 2010. Representing Samoa in two Rugby World Cups he lined up beside both his older brother, Tusi, and younger brother and fellow Saint, Ken, when the competition came to England last year.

Ken Pisi also holds onto his spot in his National side’s squad. Since making his Test debut for Samoa in 2012 against Tonga he has earned himself ten caps for the Pacific islanders.

Manu Samoa face France on Friday 12th November, Georgia on 19th and Canada on 25th.
