Eels Trio Named in Samoa Squad

The Dyldam Parramatta Eels trio of Junior Paulo, Pauli Pauli and Kaysa Pritchard has been named in the train-on squad for Samoa ahead of this year's Four Nations tournament. 

Eels prop - and new dad - Junior Paulo was 18th man for the Toa Samoa in May for the Pacific Test against the Fiji Bati, while Pritchard and Pauli have both been named while still eligible for the Eels Under 20s side. 

Toa Samoa coach Matt Parish will continue to add players to the train-on squad after NRL teams are eliminated from the finals, with a final 24-man squad to be announced on October 6.
