Two changes made as AIG MJAAs continue IRB JWRT campaign

HONG KONG, China – The USA Rugby AIG Men’s Junior All-Americans’ starting XV for the second match at the IRB Junior World Rugby Trophy has been selected. Billy Millard’s Under-20s will face Georgia Friday, April 11, at 3:00 A.M. ET.

Benjamin Tarr joins the team in Hong Kong as an injury replacement for James Gannon. Tarr will start Friday’s match at prop in place of Val Lee-Lo. The only other change in the starting XV is Mike Reid starting at scrumhalf, with Erik Thompson moving to the bench.

Both the MJAAs and Georgia won their first matches at Hong Kong Football Club Ground Monday, as the MJAAs defeated the host, 37-0, and Georgia beat Tonga, 34-10. The MJAAs sit atop Pool A after picking up the bonus point in their win.
