Faosiliva in 58-man Samoa squad

28 April 2015

Bath Rugby flanker Alafoti Faosiliva has been named in the 58-man wider training group for Samoa's 2015 Rugby World Cup campaign.

Faosiliva, once a nominee for World Sevens Player of the Year, has made 12 international appearances for Manu Samoa - scoring four tries in as many starts. He is joined in the extended squad by a host of fellow Aviva Premiership players such as Sinoti Sinoti (Newcastle Falcons), James Johnston (Saracens) and Ken and George Pisi (Northampton Saints).

The squad number will be reduced to 38 in early June for a ground-breaking match against the All Blacks on home soil on 8th July. On 9th July, a final squad of 31 will be named for the Pacific Nations Cup in North America.
