CARDIFF - Samoa have served notice of their intention to attack Wales at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium this weekend with the announcement of an experienced side.
Halfback Kahn Fotuali'i, who plays his club rugby for Welsh regional side the Ospreys, Maurie Fa'asvalu, a flanker with English champions Harlequins, and Worcester winger David Lemi, the Pacific Islanders' captain, are among six changes from the side that beat Canada 42-12 in Colwyn Bay, north Wales, last Friday.
Samoa will be thirsting for revenge following their World Cup pool defeat by Wales in New Zealand last year.
Fotuali'i, in fine form for the Ospreys this season, replaced Jeremy Su'a while Fa'asavalu came in for Tivani Foma'i.
Former Sale back Paul Williams returned from injury to start in the centre with captain Lemi in the left-wing berth.
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. Res: Ti'i Paulo, Viliamu Afatia, James Johnston, TBA, Tivani Foma'i, Jeremy Su'a, Johnny Leota, Robert Lilomaiava.
