Samoa star Sapolu in Twitter rant against the IRB
Samoa centre Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu could face disciplinary action after a scathing Twitter attack on the International Rugby Board.
Gloucester player Fuimaono-Sapolu accused the IRB of treating Samoa unfairly after they were only afforded four days between Rugby World Cup matches.
By contrast, Wales enjoyed a break of seven days between their opening defeat to South Africa and a 17-10 victory over Samoa on Sunday.
"IRB, Stop exploiting my people," Fuimaono-Sapolu tweeted.
"Please, all we ask is fairness. If they get a week, give us a week. Simple. £equity £justice."
"Ok, it's obvious the IRB are unjust. Wales get 7 days, we get 3. Unfair treatment, like slavery, like the holocaust, like apartheid. F*** U. Give Wales 3 days off, and give Samoa a week!! We would kill them!!!"
Fuimaono-Sapolu could be deemed to have broken the World Cup code of conduct, which includes guidelines on the use of social media.
The fixture schedule has been devised to ensure matches involving top-tier nations would be broadcast during prime-time slots to maximise commercial revenue.
According to the IRB, revenue from the tournament will be reinvested in high-performance centres in countries such as Samoa.
The governing body claims the alternative would be to reduce the tournament size, restricting the chances of developing nations to compete.
