Besides the great interest in Ruby to represent Manu Samoa, the love for the game goes back to my (soon to be) father in-law, Mareko Mua'itau Philipp. His legend lives on as the greatest rugby player ever to live. Mareko played for the very first Manu Samoa team in 1976. As he rests in heaven, we continue to cheer his teammates and prideful team on, as his love for the game lives forever through us!
