Congratulations to Harlequins scrum half Steve So'oialo, who has been selected in the Samoa squad for the Rugby World Cup in France later this year.
Samoa are in the same pool as South Africa, Georgia and England, so So'ioalo is likely to come up against a number of his Quins team-mates in the fight to qualify for the knockout stages of the tournament.
This will be the 30 year-olds third appearance in the World Cup, having also played in the 1999 and 2003 tournaments.
Prior to the Rugby World Cup, the Samoan squad will be visiting the Twickenham Stoop to play Harlequins in a friendly on Friday 17th August. The game will be part of Samoa's preparations for the tournament and Quins preparations for the start of the 2007/08 Guinness Premiership season.
