Regulars Return As Eagles Head To Vegas

Head coach Mike Friday has named a familiar side as his team gets ready for this weekend's Las Vegas 7s. After missing out in Wellington and Sydney Garrett Bender and Maka Unufe are back in the team. Bender will provide a big presence at the breakdown while Unufe is one of the team's most dynamic players on offense.

The rest of the team is pretty much the same group of players that has played on the Series this year with the addition of Ben Pinkelman. Carlin Isles and Perry Baker will once again provide the speed, Folau Niua, Nate Augspurger, and Madison Hughes will be the playmakers, and Danny Barrett, Zack Test, Will Holder, and Martin Iosefo will help provide the power.

The U.S. will play Wales and Canada on Friday followed by South Africa on Saturday to round out pool play.

Squad: Carlin Isles, Ben Pinkelman, Danny Barrett, Garrett Bender, Zack Test, Will Holder, Folau Niua, Maka Unufe, Nate Augspurger, Madison Hughes, Perry Baker, Martin Iosefo
