Former Toa Samoa rugby league international Pita Godinet will turn out for an American Samoa team at this weekend's Cabramatta International 9s in Sydney.
The 28 year old former New Zealand Warriors utility has returned home after two years playing for Wakefield in the UK Superleague.
He last played for Samoa in the 2014 Four Nations and 'Amerika Samoa' coach Paul Roebeck says he will add further strength to their line-up.
"We've got all the ones that I wanted released from their club teams over there, which is great, and we've got a real good hooker in for us this year with Pita Godinet. We've got three other Godinet's in the side and he's back from England. They must have had a family get-together and then he showed his interest so I gave him and call and yeah he's in. It's a great pick up."
Amerika Samoa won the Plate title last year and Paul Roebeck says they're capable of a top-two finish this time around.
