Test Out As Eagles Make Changes For Vancouver

The Eagles 7s were already going to have to change a number of players with injuries to Maka Unufe and Will Holder at the Vegas 7s and Carlin Isles using this weekend to run track. Now they've lost Zack Test as well who also picked up an injury in Vegas. As a result, Mike Friday has called in four players who played last weekend with the Falcons. Thretton Palamo, Ben Leatigaga, and Pat Blair all come back into the team having previous Series experience. Joining them is Seth Halliman, who like Ben Pinkleman, will make his debut for the team while still in college.

Overall, the changes make sense. Palamo and Blair provide a bit of power up front but can also be creative. Leatigaga has solid aerial ability. Halliman is also good in the air but has deceptively fast speed but obviously not enough to replicate Isles. Friday will also be looking to the holdovers from Vegas to help fill in the void.

Squad: Thretton Palamo, Ben Pinkleman, Danny Barrett, Garrett Bender, Ben Leatigaga, Pat Blair, Folau Niua, Seth Halliman, Nate Ausgpurger, Madison Hughes, Perry Baker, Martin Iosefo
