Maka Unufe joined up with the USA Men's Eagle Sevens team on Tuesday to replace an injured Nick Edwards. Unufe was originally named to the Hong Kong and Tokyo squad, but had a death in the family and wasn't able to travel.
Unufe debuted against South Africa at the Wellington Sevens in February and the youngster has improved with every game. He was electric in Las Vegas, but struggled to find space on the narrow field at Sam Boyd Stadium. Prince Chichibu stadium is plenty wide, so watch for Unufe to kick into high gear on the outside.
