The Samoa Rugby Union will meet today in the wake of Adrian Thompson turning down the Manu Samoa head coach role.

Earlier in the month the union announced the former Australia A coach would being taking on the job but Thompson has told the Samoa Observer the two parties didn't agree on a proposed contract.

At the end of last week Union secretary Ameperosa Roma said negotiations with Thompson were ongoing but there were no significant hurdles to overcome.
