Samoa prime minister hits back at rebellious rugby players
14-nov.2014 - winnipegfreepress.

Samoa Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sa'ilele Malielegaoi has blasted national rugby players who threatened to boycott next week's test against England as "little kids" who are guilty of "foolish thinking."

Tuilaepa, who is also chairman of the Samoan Rugby Union, said the threatened boycott was the work of troublemakers within the Samoa team who put money before country.

Samoan players wrote to the International Rugby Board in late October, saying they would not play the Nov. 22 test against England at Twickenham unless their concerns about the management of the Samoan Rugby Union were addressed.
