31st August 2019 NZ Heartland XV vs Manu Samoa : Kick off 2pm New Zealand Heartland XV will play first against Manu Samoa in what promises to be a fast-paced and physical match. Recently appointed Manu Samoa Head Coach, Steve Jackson, will be looking to the match as an opportunity to build-on performances from the Pacific Nation’s Cup. “This is another great opportunity for our squad to get together and finalise preparations for Japan. We are a very close group and any opportunity to come together to work on both on-field executions as well as the equally important off-field culture is something we all jump at” said Steve Jackson, Manu Samoa Head Coach. Heartland XV Head Coach Mark Rutene said Heartland players would welcome the opportunity to play in black. “We look forward to challenging ourselves against a top 20 side and one that is extremely physical and plays the game at a fast pace. We will have the best players from across the Heartland unions coming together and is another great opportunity to reward players for strong seasons in their provincial colours” said Heartland XV Head Coach, Mark Rutene.
