PRO Rugby Weekend Rosters

The rosters for this weekend's PRO Rugby matches are in. For San Diego it's their last game of the season and there aren't too many changes. Kurt Morath comes back from injury and will be in the starting line-up while Eagles 7s player Pat Blair could make his debut for the team off the bench. Expect to see a lot more Eagles 7s players on PRO Rugby rosters next year without the Olympics looming.

Their opponents for Saturday, Sacramento, have made a lot more changes. Val Lee-Lo is back in the starting line-up after coming back from injury. Eric Fry will start once again as does Cam Falcon which means Ray Barkwill and Ollie Kilifi are on the bench. The other changes come in the backs. Mirco Bergamasco will start at fly-half once again while Harry Bennett moves to fullback. That's an interesting change but one that has been done earlier in the season. Garrett Brewer is back on the wing while Jope Motokana moves to center.

Take the jump to read more.

Both Denver and San Francisco haven't made a lot of changes to their rosters. The big news for San Francisco is that Mils Muliaina could return from injury and will be in the starting line-up at fullback. If he's not able to go then Jake Anderson will start in his place otherwise Anderson will be on the bench.  Denver have shuffled somethings around in their backs. With Max De Achaval not available Ata Malifa will be the fullback and Timana Tahu will slide into the centers.
