Eagles Name Starters To Face Uruguay

It's all on the line for the Eagles on Saturday as they face Uruguay for the ARC title. As long as they come away from the match with at least a point they'll be the first back to back champions in the competition's history. To that end head coach Gary Gold has once again gone with stability in his line-up. There are changes from the team that faced Brazil last week. Nick Civetta has been forced off with a suspension and in his place will come Brendan Daly. He'll pair with Ben Landry in the locks.

Also returning to the team is Tony Lamborn who will play at flanker along with Hanco Germishuys. Psalm Wooching, who started last week, moves to the bench. Also, Paul Lasike comes in to start at center along with Bryce Campbell. Dylan Audsley will move to fullback with Mike Te'o sliding to wing. Josh Whippy will be on the bench this week after starting.

The bench options have also been with the team for awhile but there is a surprise with Dino Waldren available once again.
