Samoa have recalled their big-name players for the Test against Six Nations champions Wales at the Millennium Stadium on Friday.

The South Sea Islanders have made six changes to the side that beat Canada 42-12 last weekend.

David Lemi returns to captain the team on the left wing in place of Robert Lilomaiava, who drops to the bench after scoring four tries against the Canadians.

Kahn Fotuali'i and Paul Williams add extra firepower to the backline that also includes Eastern Province Kings wing Paul Perez.

Harlequins flank Maurie Fa'asavalu also starts, bringing the total number of European-based players in the run-on side to seven.

The bench is yet to be finalised with coach Stephen Betham naming just seven substitutes.
