Samoa coach Semo Sititi says his team has been working hard on set pieces ahead of tomorrow's final group match against Italy at the World Rugby Junior Champs.
Samoa were thumped 40-8 by South Africa at the weekend, following a narrow defeat to Australia.
Semo Sititi says they committed too many errors against the Junior Wallabies and let the Baby Boks outmuscle them up front.
He says the Italy game is their best chance at victory but expects the hosts will be feeling the same way.
"They're going to treat this game as a must-win game for them and for us it's the same thing so it's a tough pool but it's not an excuse for us to be in the 'pool of death'. We're here to compete and that's all we're here for. Against Italy - we watched a bit of all their games - we're sort of trying to get the ball off set pieces and attack like we know we can and we've worked hard on it".
