Just trawling the net and came across the Samoan RL website  http://www.rugbyleaguesamoa.com/

 

There's an advert on there for a match between Samoa and USA in Hawaii on 1 June 2013.  As there has been no mention of this game in our press it looks like no SL or NRL players will take part.  From a Samoan perspective I guess its a chance for players from the NZ domestic comp, lower grade Aussie leagues and maybe Samoan residents to stake a claim for a World Cup squad place.

 

Anybody any info on the likely team line-ups?

It may be just players with Samoan heritage who live in the US as opposed to the full strength squad?

Guess we can go scour the Hawaii RL Facebook page and see if there is any talks of it there.

We would love to go to Hawaii though. Would be quite the trip.

The American team will likely be comprised of Hawaiian RU players.

Final score in this game was Samoa 34 - USA 10.

 

The Samoan side comprised of Samoan residents along with 3 New Zealand residents.  Not sure of the make up of the USA team but as Evil Homer pointed out, I believe a fair few Hawaiian players were included in the squad.
