PRO Rugby Weekend Rosters

The line-ups are in for another weekend of PRO Rugby action. Ohio will travel to San Diego and Denver will travel to Sacramento.


After a week off Denver return their core group of players once again with some adjustments. Junior All-American standout Hanco Germishuys will make his debut. He's been suggested as running out at hooker but he'll be a flanker on Sunday. At hooker is Nick Wallace, who is normally a prop. Germishuys at flanker moves Logan Collins down into the locks. The backs pretty much remain unchanged.

Forwards: Ben Tarr, Nick Wallace, Chris Baumann, Logan Collins, Christian Wiessing, Gannon Moore, Hanco Germishuys, Pedrie Wannenburg

Backs: Niku Kruger, Will Magie, Timana Tahu, Ata Malifa, Chad London, Mike Garrity, Max De Achaval

Bench: Luke White, Jake Turnbull, Soane Leger, Brodie Orth, Brian Wanless, Justin Pauga, Michael Al-Jiboori, Bobby Impson

Sacramento have only made a couple or changes. Garrett Brewer moves from fly-half to fullback with Alipate Takiveikata at fly-half. Other than that Ryan Keowler and Ryan Thompson move to the bench in favor of Takeiveikata and Shane Morre.

Forwards: Vall Lee-Lo, Ray Barkwill, Ollie Kilifi, Robert Meeson, Sione Sina, Kyle Sumsion, John Quill, Langilangi Haupeakui

Backs: Chris Saint, Alipate Takeiveikata, Jojo Tikoisuva, Mirco Bergamasco, Nemia Qoro, Shane Moore, Garrett Brewer

Bench: Matt Doubek, Toke Kefu, Kali Tavake, Sione Latu, Estephan Tuimasanga, Ronald Dwyer, Ryan Thompson, Ryan Koewler


There weren't many reasons for Ohio to make a change so they haven't. The forwards remain the same while the backs only have two changes. Shaun Davies is out with an injury and in steps Robbie Shaw. That's pretty good experience to have at your disposal. Also, Ahmad Harajly moves to fullback and Ryan Cochran goes into the centers. Chris Kunkel moves to the bench.

San Diego similarly haven't made many changes. In the forwards Mike Sosene-Feagi and Joe Taufete'e will start at hooker and prop respectively. There are no changes in the backs.

Forwards: Hubert Buydens, Mike Sosene-Feagai, Joe Taufete'e, David Dolinar, Tai Tuisamoa, Chris Turori, Cecil Garber, Sione Tuihalamaka
