WATCH | Russia captain gives another great interview after defeat

Russia captain Artemyev has quickly become a fan favourite.

Here’s his brilliant interview following the 34-9 defeat against Samoa.

Three tries in eight minutes at the start of the second half saw Samoa overcome a slow start and earn a bonus-point win against spirited Russia.

Russia led at the break 6-5 thanks to two penalties from Yury Kushnarev.

But Samoa found their fluency to run in five second-half tries and ease to victory as the Bears ran out of steam.
