Ofisa Treviranus has been named captain of Manu Samoa ahead of next week's historic test against the All Blacks in Apia.

The 31 year old London Irish back-rower, who is the older brother of injured Samoan midfielder Alapati Leiua, takes over the skippers role from veteran wing David Lemi.

He has 31 caps for his country and will also lead the Manu in the Pacific Nations Cup and Rugby World Cup.
