Blues star Brian To has confirmed that Samoan will represent Australia at the Rugby League World Cup.
Too, who appears on Triple M’s Deadset Legends, said he would “play for my family” in October.
“Of course I’m playing at the World Cup and I’m wearing a Samoan red and blue jersey,” he said. I promise Samoa.

“For me, wearing a jersey is obviously for the world and it’s a great opportunity to play for Australia, but my people and family are more meaningful.
This is a big coup for Samoa between Too, the front-runner, and Kangaroo coach Mal Meninga.
The 23-year-old had previously hinted that Australia would win the test of loyalty. This was despite the fact that Panthers teammate Jarom Lui tried to persuade him to move to Samoa.

“I would like to represent Samoa at the World Cup, and it will be my first time working with the team,” Too told the Herald in February.
But my parents want me to sign up for Australia in the playground and that’s something I have to consider. If I am selected, I have a good chance of playing for Australia.
“The way they look, it’s hard to do for Australia and it’s very special to see their child play in one of the most talented teams.
“My parents want me to do this. They are proud to have my last name chosen for Australia.
Too played for Samoa One International in 2019.
