Mapusua and the rest of the Samoa team travelled to Aberdeen off the back of a spirited 26-13 defeat to England while Scotland upset world champions South Africa 21-17.
The New Zealand-born centre is all too aware of the Scots success but insists Samoa are on an upward curve of their own and intent on causing an upset.
“I’ve actually been a Scottish rugby supporter every year during the RBS 6 Nations since I came to the northern hemisphere,” said Mapusua.
“That has ruffled a few feathers in London but that is nothing new for me. I think it is because, like the Samoans, Scotland are always punching above their weight.
“They are always so close and sometimes miss out but when they pull it off it is a huge achievement for everyone involved.
“We have seen Dan Parks and how dangerous he can be with the boot and I have been really impressed with Ross Ford as well.
“But the Samoa team has shown that it has come a long way as well. We didn’t have a lot of the ball against England and we need to make better use of what we do get.
“But I think our forwards were immense in defence against England but they really want to work on the set-piece and also ball retention.”
