Canucks crash in face of Samoa onslaught

Samoa demolished Canada 42-12 at Parc Eirias in Colwyn Bay, Wales on Friday.

Sevens star Robert Lilomaiava scored four of Samoa's five tries as the Pacific Islanders raced to a 42-0 lead before taking their foot off the accelerator. Fullback James So'oialo scored 20 points for Samoa.

Late tries to replacement backrower John Moonlight and flyhalf Connor Braid added respectability to the scoreline for Canada.

Former Sydney Roosters star Seitamata Sa played in the centres for Samoa.
