Samoa coach Titimaea Tafua is hoping two of his key players will be fully fit to take on Wales in Hamilton on Sunday.
Fly half Tusi Pisi and flanker Taiasina Tuifua both came off in the first half of Samoa's 49-12 victory over Namibia on Wednesday, but both were named for the clash with the Welsh on Sunday.
Tuifua was a late addition to the bench after initially being ruled out due to a rib injury. Taking his place in the starting line-up is Ofisa Treviranus.
"(Tuifua's injury) is not that bad, so that is why we just put him on the bench," Tafua said.
The prognosis appears promising for Pisi, who will take his regular place in the side wearing the No.10 jumper.
"Today he is 80 per cent, and he might be 99 per cent by tomorrow, and we still have a whole other day (before the 15:30 match with Wales on Sunday)," the coach said.
The only other change to the line-up is Jeremy Sua, who will replace Junior Poluleuligaga on the bench.
