Samoa head coach Titimaea Tafua has made just two changes to the side which saw off Fiji for Sunday's must-win Rugby World Cup Pool D encounter with South Africa in North Shore City.
Both changes come in the back-line, with David Lemi taking over from Sailosi Tagicakibau on the right wing and Eliota Fuimanono Sapolu replacing George Pisi in midfield. The inclusion of Fuimanono Sapolu at inside centre sees Seilala Mapusua switch to No.13.
Samoa: Paul Williams; David Lemi, Seilala Mapusua, Eliota Fuimanono Sapolu, Alesana Tuilagi; Tusi Pisi, Kahn Fotuali'i; Sakaria Taulafo, Mahonri Schwalger (capt), Census Johnston; Daniel Leo, Kane Thompson; Taiasina Tuifua, Maurie Faasavalu, George Stowers.
Replacements: Ole Avei, Anthony Perenise, Logovi'i Mulipola, Ofisa Treviranus, Filipo Lavea Levi, Junior Poluleuligaga, George Pisi.
