Manu Samoa calls Sailosi Tagicakibau for replacement

9:25 am on 15 September 2007

The Manu Samoa rugby team has called Fiji's Sailosi Tagicakibau to replace injured Anetele'a Tuilagi, who was ruled out after serious injuries obtained during a warm-up game before the opening of the Rugby World Cup in France last week.

Tagicakibau is currently playing for the London Irish rugby club.

Meanwhile veteran winger, Brian Lima, has been cleared to join the team in the 3rd pool match game with England and not this week-end match with Tonga after his wrist was injured during the Springboks match.

The coach, La'auli Michael Jones will announce his team line up for Sunday's match with Tonga today.
