SRU STATEMENT ON LOSI FILIPO
Samoa Rugby Union has received media enquiries regarding the selection of new Manu Samoa Sevens player Losi Filipo given an incident in his past which saw him lose a playing contract with the Wellington Lions in 2016 after a conviction on an assault charge in court.
Samoa Rugby Union wants to make it clear at the outset that it has always been aware of this unfortunate incident in the young players past.
“Filipo has paid the price for his actions and served the penalty handed down by the Court and as far as we are concerned this young man wants to move on and make amends,” said SRU CEO Faleomavaega Vincent Fepulea’i.
“We are confident he has learnt his lesson and we want to give him all the support as a rugby player and as a responsible member of the community.”
Losi Filipo is training with the team and will not be making any statements on this matter.
