International round-up: Lam double fires Samoa

Jack Lam scored twice as Manu Samoa ended their 2018 season on a high with a 28-10 win over Spain.

Tusi Pisi, Alapati Leiua and Jordan Lay also started in Madrid, while James Lay was among the replacements, as they battled to a hard-fought victory.

Lam, captaining the side, scored in either half while Rey Lee-Lo and Ed Fidow also touched down to repel a brief Spain fightback.

After an early penalty, Lam quickly peeled off to the left, linking up with Ofisa Treviranus to score an easy try under the posts.

One moment of lost concentration had let Samoa in, and they took a 7-3 lead into the break.

Lam scored his second try from a scrum, before Richard Stewart intercepted a Tusi Pisi pass and ran 60-plus metres to score under the posts.

Rey Lee-Lo scored after strong sustained phase play and ten minutes later, Samoa were in again for their fourth try as wing Ed Fidow sprinted away to score in the corner.

Fullback Jamie-Jerry Taulagi converted from out wide, making him a perfect 4/4 on the day.
