The prospect of playing the top three countries in international rugby league will be up for grabs in the second annual Pacific test in May.

Samoa will take on Fiji in Penrith on May the 3rd, with the winner to compete alongside New Zealand, Australia and England in the end-of-season Four Nations tournament.

The President of Rugby League Samoa, Tagaloa Faafouina Su'a, says it's a great opportunity.

"The chance of a lifetime if we can make it into that Four Nations but we have to put together all our aspects in order to make this one of our dreams too but it's not going to be easy. There will be lots of challenges in team selection and all those normal challenges evolves around the dynamics of a team will be there but we just have to do our best and do what we can from the resources available from time to time and the players."

Toa Samoa were beaten by Tonga in last year's inaugural Pacific Test, which is played on the same weekend as the ANZAC test.

The Fiji Bati made the semi finals at last year's World Cup in the Northern Hemisphere, while Toa Samoa made it to the quarters.
