Vuna starts for Tonga against Samoa

15 June 2018

Bath Rugby's Cooper Vuna will start on the left wing for Tonga in their Pacific Nations Cup encounter against Samoa on Saturday at ANZ Stadium, Suva. 

The powerful winger will earn his seventh cap for his country, as Tonga face a formidable Samoan outfit, which includes the likes of Sinoti Sinoti, who was named Premiership Player of the Season following a superb season with Newcastle Falcons.
