Newcastle Knights star Sione Mata'utia has been pulled out of Samoa's Rugby League World Cup side. 

He was selected in a 24-man side along with his brother Peter and new Newcastle recruits Herman Ese'ese and Tautau Moga this morning, but it's been confirmed the forward will be rested as a precaution following a spate of concussions. 

The Knights say Sione is being rested as a precaution. 

While Moga has also been confirmed as a late withdrawal due to injury.
