HSAA roster announced for final match of Argentina Tour

The USA Rugby Boys High School All-Americans will reshape the starting line-up for the second and final test match against Argentina U18s Saturday, July 27, at the Uru Cure Rugby Club in Rio Cuarto. The game is scheduled for an 11:45 A.M. kickoff, 10:45 A.M. EST.

The front row will have Titi Lamositele, Suwaiter Poch and Valdemar Lee-Lo with locks Justin Allen and Gabe Ruflin. The back row has Reed Heynen at six, Hanco Germishuys at open side and Vili Helu at eight. Six changes in the forwards from Wednesday's game.

Michael Reid teams up with Jimmy Wolfer at scrum-half and fly-half, respectively. Due to injury, the HSAAs shuffled the back line by bringing Zach Webber to center in the absence of Calvin Whiting, moving Seth Halliman to wing in place of Aaron Matthews, giving Scott Dean the start at full-back.

Eight changes in the team provides a chance for the full squad to experience an international test game against Argentina.

"This tour is about our boys having the opportunities to grow and develop, so we're making full use of the 28-man roster starting a young team with eight juniors, one sophomore and six seniors," said Head Coach Salty Thompson.

Zach Webber will captain the HSAAs in the absence of the injured Calvin Whiting. Argentina will also field a new line-up on Saturday.
