New Player in for US 7s Team
Sevens - USA Sevens Men


USA 7s team Head Coach Alex Magleby has made a change in his squad for the London 7s.

Taufa. Ian Muir photoJack Halalilo sits for this weekend, and young prospect Pila Taufa, the speedster from Hawaii, steps in.

Taufa was brought along with the USA team through the Glasgow buildup week, but did not play. Malgeby wanted him in reserve in case the team had an injury, and to make sure that any reserve player would already have been in the assembly and not have missed out.

Taufa has excellent speed, and at 6-3 he's got size, too. He's still a project, but the Hawaiian has all sorts of potential.

USA Squad for London:
Matt Hawkins (captain)
Carlin Isles
Nick Edwards
Andrew Durutalo
Shalom Suniula
Zack Test
Folau Niua
Luke Hume
Blaine Scully
Colin Hawley
Brett Thompson
Pila Taufa
