Ireland v Samoa is a big game for everyone, but none more so than Connacht and Ireland centre Bundee Aki who will be facing the country of his heritage.
It’s a massive game for Ireland first and foremost because we want to get that quarter final spot and obviously it is a privilege for me to play against the country of my heritage, which is something special I’m looking forward to it.
His family will also be cheering him on in Ireland, New Zealand and Samoa,
They’re all rooting for me and hoping I play well. My parents always say to play with a humble heart – that’s what I try to do.
