The former Manu Samoa coach and All Blacks great Michael Jones says the historic game between the two sides in Apia will be a game for the ages.
This afternoon's test is the first the All Blacks have ever played in Samoa and the first official one in the Pacific.
Jones says excitement over the game is reaching fever pitch in Apia, and it's hard to explain how much it means to the nation.
"I have the opportunity to be there and I feel really honoured because it's history and it's something the Samoa people have waited to forever and its certainly something that's gonna bring the whole country and the 100s and thousands of Samoans around the world to a standstill during that 80 minutes."
Samoa's assistant coach Alama Ieremia says he hopes the test will be the first of many between the two nations on Samoan soil, but the New Zealand Rugby Union won't commit to further games.
