San Diego, Sacramento Name Starting Line-ups

Both San Diego and Sacramento have made some changes ahead of tomorrow's clash at Torero Stadium. San Diego have made the most swaps with some big changes. Kurt Morath, the league's leading scorer, will get a rest and is on the bench while Kalei Konrad will get his first start at fly-half. Konrad is going to partner with Tom Bliss who gets another chance to start. The forwards have even more changes. Canadian Jake Ilnicki will get his first taste of PRO Rugby and will pair with Canadian counterpart Hubert Buydens. Brian Doyle is back from injury and is in the locks while Tai Tuisamoa moves to flanker.

For Sacramento there aren't as many changed but there are some significant ones. The biggest change is Mirco Bergamasco moving from the centers to fly-half. Sacramento have had a carousel at fly-half this year and this move is an attempt to generate some offense. Sione Latu will slide into the centers in place of Bergamasco.
