Tuala starts in Samoa's second summer clash

Northampton Saints fullback Ahsee Tuala has been named in the starting line up for Samoa as they continue their summer series against Maori All Blacks on Saturday (3 July, kick-off: 4.30pm). 

After coming out on the wrong side of a 35-10 scoreline in a rainy Wellington last weekend, Samoa ring the changes for the second clash against the Maori – with Tuala coming into the starting line-up for the second meeting of the two sides.

The 31-year-old will earn his 23rd Samoa cap in Auckland as the side clashes with the New Zealanders, before Seilala Mapusua's side tackle Tonga in a Rugby World Cup qualifying clash in two week's time.
