NZ based players out to impress Samoa 7s selectors

Eight men's and women's teams will compete over two days at Hataitai Park, as Tonga, New Zealand and Samoa step up their preparation for the Tokyo Olympics.

The Samoa Barbarians includes six players who have represented the Manu on the World Sevens Series, including incumbent captain Tomasi Alosio.

He was a part of the Samoan side that lost in the final of the Olympic repechage event four years ago and said the players want to redeem themselves in Monaco in June.
