Scarlets second row Sam Lousi has been named in the Tonga squad for July’s Pacific Nations Cup and World Cup qualifier.

Sam, who picked up the fans’ and players’ player of the season award for 2021-22, is included in a 31-man party to face Fiji, Samoa and Australia A in the Pacific Nations Cup, before a World Cup play-off match against either Hong Kong, South Korea or Malaysia.
