Jack Lam goes into RWC as one of Manu Samoa’s most capped players

Jack Lam will be heading to the Rugby World Cup as one of the most capped players in the Manu Samoa side.

Lam has played a total of 35 international test matches, making him the second highest coming behind  Tusi Pisi who has played a total of 37 matches.

Lam was one of the two players that were called back for a last minute fitness test before flying out to Japan.

He was replaced  late in the first half of Saturday's 34-15 defeat by Australia in Parramatta after taking a knock to the eye while attempting to tackle Sekope Kepu, with Malolua following suit a couple of minutes later after dislocating his shoulder.

However, Lam passed the test.

Samoa will face Russia in their first game of the Rugby World Cup on 24 September 2019.
