Samoan side stacked with NRL talent and flair
8:12 pm GMT+12, 10/10/2019, Australia

Samoa have named a side stacked with flair and NRL talent for the World Cup Nines, including Canberra grand final centre Joey Leilua.
 
The team has plenty of size and mobility in the forwards with the likes of Storm prop Tino Fa'asuamaleaui, Wests Tigers second-rower Michael Chee Kam and St George Illawarra's Luciano Leilua.
 
His brother, Joey, is among several top-line backs in the Samoan squad alongside Manly winger Jorge Taufua, Panthers rookie Brian To'o, Dragons centre Tim Lafai and Wests Tigers speedster David Nofoaluma.
 
On the playmaking front the Samoans are also well served with Newcastle hooker Danny Levi and Panthers five-eighth Jarome Luai expected to call the shots.
