    Australia A name side to face Samoa

    Australia A name side to face Samoa

    Australia A coach Phil Mooney has decided to chop and change his side to play Samoa in Apia in the second round of the IRB Pacific Nations Cup on Saturday.

    Mooney has kept the nucleus of the side which dispatched Japan 42-21 in the first round, while bringing in some fresh legs to rejuvenate the team after a heavy travel schedule.

    glad to see tyrone smith have a go.
    I think Tahu played well enough last week to retian his spot and so did turinui.

    Daruda though, should have made it before Halangahu.

    Welcome to 21st century, multi-cultural Australia benny
    There is quite a few with Islander names &/or heritage in there though isn't there?
    To my knowledge, if including Australian born of South Pacific heritage, NZ & PNG:

    1. Pek Cowan,
    3. Salesi Ma’afu,
    6. Poutasi Luafutu,
    10. Daniel Halangahu,
    11. Timana Tahu,
    12. Tyrone Smith,
    13. Morgan Turinui (C),
    14. Mark Gerrard,
    16. John Ulugia,
    19. Leroy Houston,
    21. Scott Daruda,

    11/22!
    So long as they are also green & gold for life then the more the merrier I say
