Eagles Picked For Silicon Valley 7s

The Eagles 7s has named a mixed squad of veterans and newcomers ahead of the Silicon Valley 7s this weekend. Series regulars Folau Niua, Maka Unufe, and Martin Iosefo are all on the team and will take leadership roles. Other players with significant experience include Ben Pinkelman, Matai Leuta, Ryan Matyas, and Steve Tomasin. Malon Al-Jiboori, Kevin Williams, and Anthony Welmers have all been around the set up before and will see time as has Chris Mattina. The lone relative newcomer is Joe Schroeder. He's a big body out of Ohio.

The team will take on Tonga, New Zealand, and Chile in what should be a perfect warm-up weekend for the 7s Series. Most key players on the team will get a rest but for the newcomers it is an opportunity to make an impact.

Squad: Malon Al-Jiboori, Ben Pinkelman (C), Joe Schroeder, Matai Leuta, Ryan Matyas, Anthony Welmers, Folau Niua, Maka Unufe, Steve Tomasin, Chris Mattina, Kevon Williams, Martin Iosefo; Alternate: Madison Hughes
