Boks to face Samoa at RWC

Samoa have qualified for the 2011 World Cup and will face the Springboks in Pool D.

Samoa beat Papua New Guinea 73-12 to clinch a 188-19 win on aggregate over their Oceania rivals and qualify for the global tournament in New Zealand.

The Oceania qualifier had already been drawn to appear in Pool D where they will join the defending World Champion Springboks as well as Wales and Fiji. The pool line-up will be completed by the winner of Africa’s qualifying final between Tunisia and Namibia in November.
