Manu Samoa Team:

Ben Nee-Nee, Iakopo Petelo-Mapu, Melani Matavao and Stacey Ili all drop out of the 23 entirely, with loosie Mat Luamanu, halfback Pele Cowley and centre Alofa Alofa taking their spots on the bench.

Dwayne Polataivao gets the starting nod at halfback after 20 minutes off the bench against USA Eagles last week.

Jackson makes these changes having spoken of wanting to build depth on the Northern Hemisphere Tour.
