Census Johnston

Samoan stalwart: Census Johnston

Samoa have announced their squad for the upcoming November Test matches, including eight players who ply their trade at French clubs.

Powerful prop Census Johnston is the most experienced member of the touring party, with over 40 caps to his name, but fellow veterans Alesana Tuilagi and Seilala Mapusua miss out on selection, with both currently playing for Japanese club sides.

Northampton Saints duo Kahn Fotualii and George Pisi make the squad following fine starts to their respective Premiership careers, with the impressive Leicester Tigers front-row Logovii Mulipola also winning a place among the forwards.

27-year-old Hurricanes flanker Faifili Levave is in line for his international debut after being called-up by Stephen Betham.

Samoa squad:

Forwards: Ole Avei, Ti'i Paulo, Census Johnston, Sakaria Taulafo, Logovii Mulipola, James Johnston, Viliamu Afatia, Teofilo Paulo, Daniel Leo, Piula Faasalele, Joe Tekori, Faatiga Lemalu, Maurie Faasavalu, Ofisa Treviranus, Jack Lam, Taiasina Tuifua, Faifili Levave.

Backs: Kahn Fotualii, Jeremy Su'a, Tusi Pisi, Patrick Faapale, George Pisi, Johnny Leota, Paul Williams, Isaia Tuifua, David Lemi, Alapati Leiua, Sinoti Sinoti, Brando Vaaulu, Faatoina Autagavaia.
