Sport: Manu Samoa coach set for sack

From , 3:00 pm on 28 August 2018

Fuimaono Titimaea Tafua is set to be dumped as Manu Samoa head coach after the Samoa Rugby Union decided to readvertise the position.

Fuimaono was appointed to a second stint in charge in September last year, against the wishes of World Rugby.

But SRU General Manager of High Performance, Zane Hilton, told Vinnie Wylie that, despite securing World Cup qualification, a return of two wins from seven tests was not acceptable.
