Quartet earn Samoa call-ups ahead of November internationals

Four members of the Bristol Rugby squad have been selected to play for Samoa in the upcoming Autumn internationals.

Winger David Lemi, centre Alapati Leiua, second row Chris Vui and back rower Jack Lam have all been called up by head coach Fuimaono Titimaea Tafua for the tour.

Lemi became the club's record try-scorer in competitive fixtures when the 35 year-old notched a hat trick in the victory over Cornish Pirates in September.

Alapati Leiua has made an immediate impact since his arrival from Wasps in the summer. The bulldozing centre touched down in the victory over London Scottish at Ashton Gate.

Lock Chris Vui has caught the eye with a string of assured displays in the engine room. The former Worcester Warriors man has made two appearances for the club since his arrival in the summer.

One of the most popular players in a Bristol shirt, Jack Lam has made fifty appearances for the club since 2014.

The Pacific islanders are playing Scotland on November 11th, Romania on November 18th, before facing England on November 25th.
