Upolu Samoa: 2007 Pacific Cup Champions

Upolu Samoa is a former Samoa rugby union representative team that played in the IRB Pacific Rugby Cup from 2006 to 2010. The other Samoan team in the Cup was Savaii Samoa. The players for Upolu Samoa were selected from all rugby union competitions in Samoa.

History[edit]

The Upolu Samoa team failed to reach the final of the Pacific Rugby Cup in its inaugural year, 2006. Samoa was instead represented by Savaii Samoa, who won the title. After an entertaining 2007 tournament, Upolu managed to reach the final for the first time and became the Pacific Rugby Cup champions, defeating Tau'uta Reds in the final played at Teufaiva Stadium in Nukuʻalofa on 5 May 2007. Upolu Samoa hosted the final at Apia Park for the next two seasons but had to be satisfied with being runners-up on both occasions with Tautahi Gold winning 11 to 3 in 2008, and Fiji Warriors winning 19 to 7 in 2008.[1][2]
