U.S.-Eligible Dunn To Play In Brisbane Global 10s
There will be an American representative at the upcoming Brisbane Global 10s. U.S.-eligible Pasqualle Dunn is on the Blues roster along with the likes of George Moala, Rene Ranger, and Ambrose Curtis. Dunn was born in the UK but raised in New Zealand. He qualifies for the U.S. through his mother. We interviewed Dunn back in 2013.
Last season Dunn spent the Mitre 10 Cup season with Auckland seeing action in a handful of matches. Prior to that he spent some time in rugby league in England and with Leicester at the same time Blaine Scully was with the club.
The Brisbane Global 10s is a new initiative that is looking to replicate the commercial success of the Auckland 9s in rugby league by acting as a pre-season encounter for Super Rugby teams.
