Samu to share some secrets in Wallabies camp
RUGBY CHAMPIONSHIP SPOTLIGHT: Wallabies loose forward Pete Samu has a lot of knowledge to share ahead of this year’s opening Rugby Championship and Bledisloe Cup match in Sydney next weekend.
Samu has won two Super Rugby titles with Crusaders and it was only a few days ago that he was still celebrating with some of his former teammates after beating the Lions in this year’s final.
He is now set to face some familiar faces when he runs out in the colours of the Wallabies.
“I’ve been throwing a bit of chat before I left so get the mind games started already so should be good,” he told rugby.com.au.
“It was definitely tough leaving the boys and the place. There was definitely a few tears shed on those last few days and it was real tough but it’s good I get to still catch up with them.
“I hope I can bring something back from over there and help out where I can [with the Wallabies).
“So, there’s no more secrets.”
Samu also weighed in on the debate about Richie Mo’unga.
He believes the Crusaders star should be starting for the All Blacks.
“He’s been playing some outstanding footy and I think it will be deserving [for] him to be starting in that No.10 jersey for that first Test,” he said.
“It’d be also special to run up against him if I get the chance.”
