Newton Abbot’s JJ Taulagi has been included in the Samoa squad of 33. The squad size will be reduced later to 28 for the Autumn Internationals against England and Scotland.
Newton Abbot played 24-year-old New Zealand born Taulagi on the wing in Saturday’s 48-42 win over Exmouth, where Taulagi managed to score a try.
The former Queensland Reds and Sunwolves player is looking to win his first cap for Samoa and catch the eye of Exeter Chiefs.
Samoa will play Scotland on Saturday 11th November and then visit Twickenham to play England on Saturday 25th November.
