McGougan will travel to Samoa with the squad tomorrow (Thursday) and Macintosh may rejoin the team further into the tournament if his injury permits.

Meanwhile, Hawke’s Bay’s Karl Lowe who is currently on paternity leave, will join the team in time for their second match in Fiji. As previously announced Otago’s’ Alando Soakai will travel with the team to Samoa to provide cover for Lowe.
