Club rugby will have to wait for four Marist St Pats players who have been selected to attend the final Manu Samoa Under 20s trial.
Following strong performances at a preliminary trial in Wellington this week Ivan Fepulea'i, Nese Solia, Kerrod Foaese and Grayson Whitman (pictured, clockwise) will travel to Samoa next week to prepare for the final trial on 24 and 25 March.
Prop Ivan Fepulea'i is relishing the opportunity to get exposure in front of national selectors, 'it could possibly open up heaps of doors for the boys to go to higher honours, so I'm pretty stoked to be selected. There are a few Marist guys going as well which makes it even better!'
We'll keep you updated on how they get on!
