Samoan Rugby Union declared bankrupt ahead of Scotland clash

Samoa take on Scotland this weekend

Samoa take on Scotland this weekend

"This support package includes World Rugby covering travel costs for players in Samoa and elsewhere to and from Europe for the November tests, the training camp ahead of the tests and Samoa A's participation in the Americas Pacific Challenge, an important preparation tournament".

Tuilaepa Sa'ilele Malielagoa, who is both the Prime Minister of the country and chairman of the SRU, has asked the public to donate money in their time of need.

Speaking to Samoa Observer, Sailele Malielegao said: "We are bankrupt".

Reportedly, the SRU can't afford to pay the players' insurance, which casts some doubt over the Murrayfield clash, which is fixed for this Saturday, 11 November.

Unfortunately this is just the latest in a long line of episodes of financial mismanagement by the Samoan Rugby Union.

England are scheduled to host the Pacific Islanders at Twickenham on November 25, live on Sky Sports, in the third of their autumn worldwide series.

It is understood the RFU are set to make a similar payment to the Samoan Rugby Union, who wrote to their hosts detailing the issues of their dispute with global governing body World Rugby over on-going funding issues and their national administration.

Now there is no regulation for host nations to share matchday revenues. World Rugby has been urged to carry out a review into the governance of the SRU, but as yet have not taken any action.

The Union is holding a fundraising radiothon today in an attempt to raise much-needed funds.
