The Heartland XV team will take on Samoa A at Apia Park at 1.30pm (NZT).

"We've got plenty of motivation for our last hit-out," said Heikell. "While it was disappointing to fall short against Apia, we took plenty away from that match and will be looking forward to an improved performance tomorrow."

The team narrowly failed to make a spectacular come back on Tuesday, losing 21 - 23 to Samoan NPC Champions Apia Rugby, after being down 9 - 23 with ten minutes to play.

"We're really enjoying our time here and have been made to feel very welcome so we will be looking to end the tour on a high note."

1 Mat Fetu
