Samoa make three changes to World Cup squad

Samoa have made three changes to their 24-man squad for the World Cup, ahead of their first game against New Zealand on Sunday.

Salford-bound forward Junior Sau, who scored a try in the 52-16 defeat to England Knights on Saturday, is called up, along with Cronulla forward Mark Taufua and New Zealand Warriors youngsters Michael Sio.

They replace Arden McCarthy, Masada Iosefa and Teofilo Lepou.

The changes come on the back of the withdrawal of captain Roy Asotasi through injury last week.
