Samoans will get a half-day public holiday next Wednesday so they can watch the historic rugby Test between Manu Samoa and the All Blacks in Apia.
The Samoan Prime Minister Tuila'epa Sa'ilele Malielegaoi, who is also the chairman of Samoa's rugby union, says a public announcement to confirm the public holiday will be made next week.
Meanwhile, people around the country have shown their support for Manu Samoa by hoisting flags in front of their homes, by the side of the road, and on their cars.
The Prime Minister says the whole country is backing the national team.
The Samoa Rugby Union on Thursday confirmed it had reduced the capacity for the Test at Apia Park from 12,000 to 8,000.
