GCP Sport are proud to announce that four GCP Sport players have been named in the Manu Samoa squad for June test matches against Georgia, Tonga and Fiji. 

Sakaria Taulafo is the most experienced of the quartet and is currently playing for Stade Francais in the French Top 14. 

Manu Leiataua plays at hooker for Aurillac in the French Pro D2 and has been in fine form all season for one of the top Pro D2 sides looking at Top 14 promotion. 

Motu Matu'u has recently returned from injury to play for the Hurricanes in Super Rugby and made his Manu Samoa debut last year in 2015. 

Making his international debut for Manu Samoa will be Jeff Lepa from the Tasman Makos. Jeff is a lock that can also cover the loose forwards and is an exciting addition to this Manu Samoa squad.

GCP Sport are proud of the achievements of our athletes and wish them all the best for the June Test matches for Manu Samoa.
