The Australian Schools side has been named to face Samoan Schools in Hamilton on Tuesday 2 October 2012.
The Australians will be looking to balance out their 1-2 record, having suffered their second loss of the tour on Saturday, falling 24-5 to the New Zealand Barbarians Under-18 side.
Earlier in the tour, the Australian Schools lost 18-9 to Fijian President’s XV before tallying their first win, 29-12 over Fijian Schools.
Ten changes have been made to the side that lost to the New Zealand Barbarians, with seven in the forward pack and three in the backs.
Second rower Matt Philip is the only man left standing in the forward pack, while the only changes to the backline see Angus Pulver replacing Andrew Ferris at scrumhalf, Jake McIntyre replacing Reece Hodge at flyhalf and Jack Tuttle at inside centre for Tepai Moeroa.
The Australian Schools face Samoan Schools tomorrow before closing the tour against New Zealand Schools on 6 October, a match which will be broadcast live on Fox Sports 3HD & 3.
