Sport: NZ rugby says comments by Manu player offensive

8:52 am on 31 May 2014

The New Zealand rugby union says comments by a former Samoa international that the All Blacks would have toured Nazi Germany if the price was right are offensive and ridiculous.

The outspoken former Samoa centre Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu made the comments in a You Tube video, criticising

New Zealand Rugby for not playing a test in Samoa, Fiji or Tonga.

Fuimaono-Sapolu says Polynesian players have had a big influence on the success of New Zealand rugby but rugby bosses are only focused on money.

The New Zealand Rugby spokesperson says they have no other comment to make on the matter.
