Eagles Picked For Paris, London

Head coach Mike Friday has made some changes to his team as they get ready for the Paris 7s and London 7s, the final two tournaments of the season. The core group remains the same minus Danny Barrett who is out with injury. The players rotating into the team are Alex Schwarz, Don Pati, and Naima Fualaau. The team is carrying 13 players to the tournaments so at least one player will have to sit out.

The Eagles will take on Argentina, Wales, and New Zealand in Paris. They have made the semi-finals four straight times and will expect to make it a fifth. That's easier said than done but this is the group that has made it happen. The tournament starts on May 13th.

Squad: Alex Schwarz, Ben Pinkelman, Don Pati, Matai Leuta, Mike Te'o, Andrew Durutalo, Folau Niua, Maka Unufe, Steve Tomasin, Madison Hughes, Perry Baker, Martin Iosefo, Naima Fualaau
