USA Selects Lineup Named To Face Samoa A In APC

Bryce Campbell for the USA

The USA Selects have named their lineup to face Samoa A on Saturday in Montevideo, Uruguay.

Unsurprisingly, Selects captain Peter Malcolm will start at hooker. He will be joined in the front row by props Alex Maughan and Angus MacLellan. Brendan Daly and Matt Jensen are the second rows, while the forward pack is rounded out by the back row of Hanco Germishuys, Aladdin Schirmer, and No. 8 Jackson Kaka. 

Of that group, only Kaka and Daly have played for the USA full test team.

Ruben de Haas, back from his stint with the Cheetahs Academy, starts at scrumhalf, with Ben Cima at flyhalf. The centers are Bryce Campbell and Tim Maupin, with Zach Pangelinan and Mitch Wilson. Life West's Martini Talapusi starts at fullback.

This team is most definitely a young one, and while 10 of the starting 15 have played full international rugby, they are not especially experienced -- that's the point of the APC.
