SAMURAI are delighted to announce the signing of a multi-year partnership with Lakapi Samoa as their official kit supplier for their players and coaching faculty, commencing with Manu Samoa’s first summer international fixture against Italy and next month the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

Lakapi Samoa is a leader on the world rugby stage who operates and plays with integrity and respect, underpinned by their spirituality and culture. Despite its size, Lakapi Samoa's sporting prowess challenges global giants, showcasing resilience and determination on an international level. The union’s values are aligned fully to those of SAMURAI. Its passion and commitment to the sport is demonstrated in the unwavering dedication of its athletes, embodying the spirit of perseverance and excellence.

SAMURAI are thrilled to be part of the movement where we will see the union transcending sport, leaving a lasting legacy of empowerment and pride within Samoan communities and echoing the nation’s pride around the world.


This is an exciting time for Lakapi Samoa. As we prepare for the next 100 years of Samoan rugby, we acknowledge the importance of partners like SAMURAI. Partners who understand us, and who are willing to stand shoulder to shoulder with us as we serve Samoa through rugby. Our partnership with SAMURAI, brings the power of apparel to the fore as we begin our journey towards the 2027 Rugby World Cup, and as we continue to challenge the status quo across international rugby.
