Tuala back at full back to face Canada

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Tuala scored one try and set up another in Samoa’s opening win over the USA in the opening rounds of matches, but missed his country’s second game, a dramatic 30-all draw with Island rivals, Fiji.

The Samoans had held on in the second half against the Eagles, but had to stage a fightback themselves against Fiji, coming from 27-15 down just before the hour to secure a share of the points with a last-minute penalty.

Their unbeaten record means that Samoa go into the final round top of Pool 1, but needing a positive result to stay ahead of Japan in the run for the competition’s final.

Meanwhile Canada may be win-less so far, but have the home advantage which comes from playing at BMO Field in Toronto.

Live coverage of the game will be at www.worldrugby.org/pnc from 11:30pm on Wednesday evening.
