Two Pacific rugby players in England are encouraging their team mates to donate money to Manu Samoa.

England's Mako Vunipola and Manu Tuilagi are asking their English players to donate five per cent of their match fees to Manu Samoa, when the teams go head-to-head later this month.

Mako Vunipola and Manu Tuilagi.

England's players will earn around NZD$41,000 per test while Samoa's players will receive just over $1000.

Vunipola and Tuilagi believe that if 23 English players give £1000 each, that will make a lot of difference to the Islanders.

England will play Manu Samoa at Twickenham Stadium on November 25.
