Cape Town - Samoa have announced their team that will face France at Stadium Municipal on Saturday, with David Lemi captaining the islanders.

Lemi joins Paul Perez and Paul Williams in the back-three while there's more experience in midfield as Rey Lee-Lo and George Pisi start.

With Tusi Pisi currently out injured, Patrick Faapale is named at flyhalf alongside Kahn Fotuali'i as the Samoans look to upset les Bleus.

Up front Zac Taulafo and Census Johnston are the props, either side of hooker Manu Leaiataua, while Christopher Vui and Filo Paulo are named in the second-row, in front of Alafoti Faosiliva, Jack Lam and Genesis Mamea-Lemalu, who are sure to be a handful for the French.
