Samoa will be in France 2023 with the defeat 37-15 against Tonga,but the advantage in Auckland last week gave them a precious ticket for the world cup.
They won 42-13 and the comfortable advantage was managed in the second game.They will be in pool D of world cup together with England,Japan,Argentina and the Americas 2.It was a match controlled but Tonga has something more at this fight.
Capitan of Samoa was happy for the qualification …
“It’s very satisfying, the last four weeks have been building to this game.We made it hard for ourselves in the second half, they were in our faces and we weren’t able to deal with that well, but the boys stuck at it.We don’t expect anything less when we play against Tonga…”
Jobe done for Samoa as Tonga will play their chances for qualification in the match with Cook Islands and the winner goes in the Asia play-off.They will hope to continue with the same effort and performance shown in this game.
