Samoa have to show more against South Africa

Samoa kept alive their slim hopes of a rugby World Cup quarter-final berth by beating rivals Fiji 27-7 at a capacity Eden Park on Sunday.

Samoa's second victory after beating Namibia and losing to Wales means they have a chance of qualifying from Pool D for the knockout stages if they can overcome holders South Africa in Albany on Friday, while Fiji are all but out of contention.

Samoa played without their usual attacking, running play as they opted to kick a lot of ball to control territory.

The Samoans know they have to show more of their game and captain Mahonri Schwalger says that includes a better forward effort.
