Manu Samoa is one step closer to qualifying for the Rugby World Cup 2023 after beating Tonga 42:13 in the first leg of qualifying today.

Ray Niuia pulled that just a minute after the second half first blood to extend the lead of Samoa to 16: 3.

Tonga pulled back in the 53rd minute, Viliami Taulani closed the gap with a converted attempt to 21:10.

Another three attempts Henry Taefu, Ed Fidow and Stacey Li seal the deal for the Samoans.

The two teams will meet again next week at the FMG Stadium in Hamilton to decide which of the two will be accepted into Pool D of the RWC .
