Men's National Team announces roster updates for road leg of November Internationals 2018

UPDATE 11/10 Nick Boyer added in San Sebastian. Updates reflected in table below. 

SAN SEBASTIAN, ESP. – After nine players return to their professional setups, the Men’s Eagles have added David Ainuu and Devereaux Ferris to the selection pool for Saturday’s matchup with Samoa. If selected, both Ainuu and Ferris will have the opportunity to earn their first caps in San Sebastian.

A collection of players have also joined the team from their professional clubs overseas, including Titi Lamositele, Joe Taufete’e, David Tameilau, Samu Manoa, Paul Lasike, Bryce Campbell and Captain Blaine Scully.

In addition to the adds, Eagle Shaun Davies continues his recovery following a harsh upper-body injury that pulled him out of the United States’ opening loss to the Mãori All Blacks in Chicago. Davies will continue to be evaluated over the course of the week with a decision on his return announced with final selections for Samoa.

The following nine did not travel with the Men’s National Team to Europe: Nate Augspurger, Dylan Audsley, Nate Brakeley, Mika Kruse, Luke Hume, Ben Landry, Alex Maughan, Anthony Purpura and Chance Wenglewski.

The Eagles will face Samoa at Anoeta Stadium in San Sebastian this Saturday, Nov. 10 at 12:30 PM ET. Broadcast information for the game will be confirmed closer to date.
