Rosters for Major League Rugby's sophomore campaign are steadily filling up as the season opener sits just over two months away. We've compiled the announced and reported signings and sifted them through a few different filters. 

First you'll see each team's tallies in three different categories; how many have been signed, how many combined international caps are under contract, and then a break down of player nationality. Keep in mind each team is allowed 10 foreigners, defined as someone who doesn't qualify to play for either the United States or Canada. For players who haven't been capped internationally and maintain dual eligibility, they're counted as a fraction. Below that you'll find each team's roster, sorted alphaetically by first name. 

Three teams have not yet announced any signings or re-sigings; San Diego, Utah and Glendale. Word is Hanco Germishuys has signed with the Raptors. News broke in recent weeks of his departure from the Elite.
