    So do I... Just read a article of him saying he's not sure if his gonna turn out for the kangaroos at the end of the year... If he does join Samoa that'll be a huge boost for Samoa

    He was overweight and out of shape in that world Cup... We didn't have most of our players as well... No Milford and Taupau

    Did Samoa get a new coach yet? They were such a disappointment that World Cup.

    I remember watching it thinking how big he was, word was the Samoan camp at the World Cup players pretty much ran the show there.

    Yeah same coach he's hopeless tbh... Bennett wanted to coach one of the island teams before he took up the England job but no one got a hold of him... Pretty gutted Samoa didn't hit him up

    That samoan team at the world Cup looked like they just came back from a holiday... Papalii and Junior Paulo both looked overweight... If that's the condition they we're in then the coach wasn't doing his job and it's not also a good look for the clubs giving there players away and they come back out of form... I remember Ricky Stuart not being happy with the Samoan team when papalii and Paulo came back into camp... They need a new coach

    The best part is how the WatchNRL service for us overseas looks to be blocking us out of the match entirely.

    Anyone got a stream I can hook into?

    I thought you could only swap T1 - T2 now.
    Eg Tyson Frizell went Wales - Australia, I thought he wouldn’t be allowed to then go to Tonga. If he can, then I agree that is a bit far.
    But Asiata has switched Samoa - Tonga hasn’t he? :rolleyes:

    The crowd announced as 23,500-odd, Not bad considering the ticket price fiasco. But pretty disappointing performance from Tonga

    The number six for Tonga has been very very ordinary. I presume he’s playing out of his normal position?
