Samoa have scored a big coup with Manly prop Martin Taupau pledging allegiance to the Pacific nation ahead of next week's Test with Papua New Guinea.

Taupau was on Thursday named in New Zealand's preliminary Test squad however on Friday took to social media to announce he had made himself available for Samoa.

"After hours of soul searching and plenty of discussion with my fiancee and family, I had to make a tough call to the NZ Kiwis coach Michael Maguire this morning to inform him that I have made the decision to make myself unavailable for selection for the NZ Kiwis, and elected to make myself available for the Toa Samoa team once again," Taupau wrote.
