Leilua makes a comeback for Samoa 7s

Laaloi Leilua is set to make an appearance for Samoa in this year’s World Series in Hong Kong this weekend.

The 21 year-old last donned the Blue jersey in July, last year.

Also out to make his comeback is Tomasi Alosio, who returns from an injury sustained in the Sydney Sevens, while Siaosi Asofolau is also fit again after missing the last tournament in Vancouver.

Samoa will be meeting Scotland in the opening match of the tournament on Friday before meeting Japan on Saturday.

Their last pool game is against South Africa.

Meanwhile, Samoa are seventh place in the World Series standings heading into this weekend's Hong Kong tournament, after finishing runners up in Las Vegas and sixth in Vancouver.
