Just Two weeks left Ahead of the historical Super Rugby Blues vs. Reds match in Apia.

Just as excited as Samoans are to see the Blues, the Blues are excited to see Samoa.

During their promotional visit to Samoa, Steven Luatua and Jerome Kaino are seen strolling around iconic places in Samoa like the Fugalei Market with ecstatic fans raring for a photo.

"We watch every game these two play in," an ecstatic mother say as she stands in the center of the two rugby giants.

Jerome Kaino explains the importance of bringing the game to Samoa. Especially since The Auckland Blues, hosts a number of Sons of Samoa including the coach, Tana Umaga.

"To bring the Blues here, you could say, is a dream come true," he says.

"Me being Pacific Islander, being Samoan, you can see the impact a lot of the Polynesians have on the Blues. "For us its only fitting to come back and say thank you to Samoa for their support."

"Having Tana (Umaga) its quite special to come here and play in front of our Samoan people."
