The Chileans have just won the last Americas Rugby Trophy 2022 when they defeated Brazil and Canada comfortably.

They finished the tournament with 14 points, two more than their immediate pursuers, the Kangaroos.
How Samoa and Chile play and Statistics
Samoa is an island team where physicality and forcefulness in contact, with or without the ball, always prevail. Their main figure is the captain, Michael Alaalatoa, player of the Irish Leinster. They also have a great influence of the sevens, so it can be said that there are good hand skills that make the defense doubt. To talk about Chile, it must be said that they are a fighting team but they get tired after a while of defending assiduously, it is difficult for them to have the initiative. They have grown considerably in the last time but they still need to continue polishing essential aspects of the game.
