Fonotia in Samoa team

By Ospreys Rugby | 30/06/2017

Kieron Fonotia will win his third international cap this weekend when Samoa face Tonga in Saturday's Pacific Nations Cup opener at Teufaiva Stadium in Nuku'alofa.

The former Crusader will wear the 13 shirt for the third consecutive weekend after making his debut a fortnight ago in a defeat to the All Blacks, before last Friday's nail biter against Wales that finished in a narrow two-point victory for Robin McBryde's team.

Samoa prevailed 30-10 when the Pacific rivals met in Apia last year and a win would be enough to seal automatic qualification for the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan.
