With New Zealand suffering a shock defeat to Tonga and therefore having to negotiate Fiji in the quarters, the tournament has been thrown wide open.

Samoa are yet to win during the competition and reached this stage after a tense 14-14 draw with Scotland, where they fought back from an eight-point half-time deficit.
