Robert Lilomaiava L of Samoa

Four tries: Robert Lilomaiava

Samoa sent a warning to Wales ahead of next week's Test by destroying Canada 42-12 at Parc Eirias in Colwyn Bay on Friday..

The Pacific Islanders dominated from the start, scoring five tries - including four for debutant wing Robert Lilomaiava - to cruise into a 42-0 lead.

Cananda saved some face with two late consolation tries in the dying minutes

The writing was on the wall early on as the Samoa pack rumbled forward. Number eight Taiasina Tui'fua grabbed the first try after taking a quick-tap penalty and barging through three defenders to score.

Samoan fly-half Tusi Pisi was pulling the strings on attack masterfully and found Lilomaiava out wide with an pin-point cross-field kick for the young Sevens flyer's first try.

Lilomaiava bagged his second thanks to the TMO before the break to give Samoa a 22-0 lead at the interval.

Lilomaiava had an easy run in for number three and was at the end of neat chip ahead from Pisi for number four.

Moonlight wriggled his way over in the dying minutes to get Canada on the scoreboard before Connor Braid's rounded off a string finish for the Canucks.
