The Samoans returned for the second half with gusto and scored a try to put them ahead. No sooner had they scored than the Germans replied with a try of their own. Disciplinary issues hit the Samoans and Germany made them count with two well take penalties to lead 28-21 with 25 minutes of the game to play. Samoa drew level in the 70th minute after a beautiful display of team work. They would go on to topple the German with two tries in the last ten minutes to win 42-28. A brace of tries each from Ah See Tuala, Melani Matavao and Ed Fidow and six conversions from Tuala were enough to do the job against Germany.
