Statistics against Test match opponents

The 1994 Samoa rugby union tour of Australia was a series of five matches played by Samoa in Australia during July and August 1994.

Samoa won the first four matches against Victoria, ACT, Queensland and a New South Wales XV, but lost the Test match against Australia in the final match at Newcastle.

The Samoan team had played 17 games for the year by that stage. The tour followed closely after the Pacific Tri-Nations and Super 10 tournaments, which included matches in New Zealand, South Africa, Fiji, and Australia.
