Union Chairman, Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi said the two players selected from overseas under the newly established World Rugby regulation eight rule are Fritz Lee and Lolagi Visinia from the All Blacks.
The PNC tournament will commence on 2 July 2022.
The Union is confident of the selection and the players are ready for the PNC as well as the World Cup next year.
With the recruitment of overseas players, the Union is worried for the financial instability faced by the Union as there is not enough financial support.
Tuilaepa has called on the government for a stimulated package for rugby as there is currently none.
