10:56 am on 11 April 2013

Samoan rugby league officials say a leaked squad list for next week's one-off Test against Tonga in Sydney is not official.

Talamua Online published what it calls a draft squad, quoting Rugby League Samoa President Tagaloa Faafouina Su'a as saying the list is subject to change given injuries and availability of players after this week's NRL matches.

Among the names listed are former Kiwis internationals Roy Asotasi and Steve Matai, who have previously announced their decision to change allegiance from New Zealand to Samoa.

Bulldogs centre Krisnan Inu was also named however Rugby League Samoa's technical advisor Nigel Vagana says the list is not official and Inu is aligned to New Zealand, not Samoa.
