Dragons front row Aki Seiuli will make his international debut for Manu Samoa against the Barbarians at Twickenham this Saturday, 2:30pm KO.
The loosehead prop has been named to start by Samoan head coach Seilala Mapusua as they take on the famous Baa-Baas.
Seiuli has made five appearances for the men of Gwent since joining from Glasgow Warriors in the summer and has been rewarded for his form with the region.
The 28-year-old is one of nine uncapped players that could make their international debut in London and everybody at Dragons wishes Aki all the best this weekend.
