Samoa were full of heart but not enough brains. They were knackered after about 20 minutes. Game was like a war zone up to that point though. Thoroughly enjoyed it
For a minute I thought you were posting about the Warriors, funny that.Very disappointing campaign by Toa Samoa. To be fair the squad was missing a host of top flight players with injuries and unavailability.
But the players chosen did not play with the heart and passion we have come to expect from any Samoan team.
In recent years they have made a lot of progress but after the England game earlier this year and the World Cup, they seem to have regressed badly.
Something needs to change, Matt Parish seemed to get the best out of the team for a long time but recently it seems the boys haven't bought into it. They looked so unfit and disinterested when things got tough.
They have to turn it around quickly or the Tonga test next year could be a blood bath.
More like the Fijians will be bashing the Kiwis around for the Aussies next week, win or lose.Go fkn hard Samoa!! Bash these Aussies around..for us next week!
(or for Fiji, shieeet, bit nervous about tomorrow)
TBH I was quite surprised how heavy Josh Papalii looked. Wondered who he was till the commentators said his name.
