Sport: Damian McGrath breaks silence on Samoa 7s sacking

From , 6:00 am on 11 October 2016

Damian McGrath has a new job but says he's still waiting to be told why he was sacked as Manu Samoa sevens coach, a month after his dismissal.

The Englishman led Samoa to a ninth place finish during the World Series but they failed to qualify for the Rio Olympics.

McGrath was unveiled as the new Canada sevens head coach over the weekend but told Vinnie Wylie no one from the Samoa Rugby Union has given him a reason why he was sacked.
