Denver, San Diego Name Starters For Sunday

The starting line-ups are in for Sunday's big clash between Denver and San Diego at Torero Stadium. Denver currently sit in the top spot but can be caught by San Diego if the home side grabs the result. With some much on the line each team has made a couple of changes to their starting line-ups but most in terms of adding quality players.

Denver pretty much stays the same coming off their bye week. Ben Tarr, Nick Wallace, and Chris Baumann will form a solid front-row. Peter Dahl, Hanco Germishuys, and Pedrie Wannenburg may be the best back-row in the competition. Mose Timoteo will start at scrumhalf.

For San Diego Jake Ilnicki will get another start after finally getting his visa. Tai Tuisamoa moves back into the locks in order to make room for former French 7s player Jean Baptiste-Gobelet. Bruce Thomas is also back from injury and will see time. In the backs Kurt Morth comes back into the starting line-up while Charlie Purdon will start at scrumhalf with Tom Bliss out all together.

  1. How old is Mose Timoteo? I played with him in 1994 on the All Army side. Amazing he is still playing at this level, IMO.
