The Chairman of the Samoa Rugby Union, Tuilaepa Sa’ilele Malielegaoi, announced the Manu Samoa Sevens team for the Wellington and Las Vegas legs of the I.R.B Sevens.
In making the announcement, the poor performance by the team in Dubai and South Africa was obviously not lost with the Prime Minister.
But Tuilaepa said he was informed that the players had suffered from food poisoning. So he had some advice for them.
“My advice is don’t just eat anything,” he said. “Those hotels can provide any food but all you need for strength is fruits. So don’t just eat anything.”
