The Webb Ellis Trophy has made the trip to Apia, Samoa and will be on display at this weekend’s crucial Rugby World Cup 2019 qualifier match between Samoa and the Vodafone Flying Fijians.

In 2016 Fiji won both of its PNC matches to win the tournament and last week Fiji beat Tonga in 14-10 to secure the Oceania 1 RWC 2019 qualifying spot.

Tonga and Samoa are now battling for the Oceania 2 qualification spot.

Samoa is one point behind Tonga in the qualification standings going into the last match with their qualifying destiny in their own hands. 

The Flying Fijians will face Samoa at 1pm Saturday at Apia Park.
