Samoa faces it very tough to get qualified for Japan and having to trust on a playoff win against Germany. Samoa was the last team who qualify for the tournament. Rugby lovers should buy Rugby World Cup Tickets and enjoy this event by supporting their team.
Samoa found it really tough to qualify. However, without Samoa, it wouldn`t be a World Cup. After coming 3rd in the Pacific Tri-Nations behind Tonga and Fiji, Samoa had to get into a playoff with Germany to secure their selection for the tournament. The Islanders well-tried too strong securing a total win of 108-43 and they get listed in Group A.
Experienced backs Paul Preze and Tusi Pisi are vital. However, it`s game-breakers like Sinoti and beastly forwards Jack Lam, TJ Iloane and Ofisa Tervitanus that fans want to see.
Samoa had re-advertised the position of head coach Steve Jackson while Titimaea Tatfua was in the hot seat. He had won only 2/7 Tests in charge however, those were the vital two against Germany. High-performance management Zane Hilton was believed to be the man to step up, but it has since been announced that Auckland Blues assistant coach, Steve Jackson, will take up the head coaching role.
