The good news is that the All Blacks have been to Samoa, the nation enjoyed the party and the Manu Samoa gave them a mighty good run for their money.
The bad news is that in the aftermath, the cash-strapped Samoa Rugby Union (S.R.U) is again staring down the barrel of a $1.5million loss. (All figures are expressed in Tala.)
The loss was confirmed by the Chairman of S.R.U and Prime Minister, Tuilaepa Sa’ilele Malielegaoi, during a media conference.
According to the Prime Minister, the historical match cost the Union $3.4million.
