The Manu Samoa and Georgia have drawn their one-off test match at Apia Park.

The teams scored one try a piece with the rest of their points coming from penalties for a 19-19 final score.

Georgia drew first blood and went into the break with a 9-6 lead.

But Manu Samoa fought back in the second half, scoring first through Captain David Lemi to mount what looked like an unassailable come back.

In the end though, Georgia scored a try and landed one more penalty kick to level the scores, much to the disappointment of an average Apia Park crowd.

More soon.
