SAMOA: Fa'atoina Autagavaia; Paul Perez, George Pisi, Paul Williams, David Lemi (capt); Tusi Pisi, Kahn Fotuali'i; Taiasina Tuifua, Maurie Fa'asavalu, Ofisa Treviranus; Teofilo Paulo, Daniel Leo; Census Johnston, Wayne Ole Avei, Sakaria Taulafo

Replacements: Ti'i Paulo, Viliamu Afatia, James Johnston, TBA, Tivaini Fomai, Jeremy Su'a, Johnny Leota, Robert Lilomaiava
