Manu Samoa come here as favourites against Scotland followingtheir 24-14 win over Tonga last weekend. While Samoan rugby has thrived on flying backs and ball-runningforwards, Jones believes his team need more discipline in their game when theymeet Scotland at Wellington Stadium.
"We always try to emulate that style of abrasive, fast andfurious rugby, but at the same time we need to be very smart to get a goodresult," said the former All Black star.
"While staying true to our natural talents of running wide,keeping the ball in hand and tackling hard, we also need to have structure anddiscipline. We want to be more tactical and maybe even a bit morerisk-free."
Jones is looking for a winning combination of Polynesian power andflair and a structured game plan. With Chiefs Super 12 speedster Lome Fa'atau on the wing, veteranBrian Lima at fly half, captain Semo Sititi at No 8 and former Blues Super 12and Auckland lock Leo Lafaiali'i packing down, Samoa have retained someof their seasoned performers from last year's World Cup.
Samoa opted to play their "home" test in the midst of acold Wellington winter in a bid to make some money for the hard-pressed Samoa RugbyUnion.
A crowd of around 15,000 is expected, mostly from New Zealand's 100,000-plus strong Samoan community, including favourite son ,b>TanaUmaga who this week became All Black captain.
Scotland arrived today (Thursday) having finished the Six-Nations seasonwithout a win, scoring 53 points and conceding 146 in their five games. Their southern hemisphere tour started with a 5-41 thumping fromQueensland last weekend.
They have already lost three leading players - flanker CameronMather, prop Euan Murray and fullback Robbie Kydd - to injury.
He got some relief in Australia Wednesday night when the sidedefeated a New South Wales Country side 48-10. For Williams it was his first win since becoming Scotland coach. "Win lose or draw, where we are with Scotland tomorrow is thesame," Williams said after the win.
"But obviously a win is certainly better than losing. It'sgreat for the guys to get a bit of self-confidence up. When you're working hard and you're losing, it's prettydemoralising, so the fact that they got a good win under their belts, it's good forthe whole squad."
