The USA and Samoa have named their squads to face each in the Junior World Rugby Trophy in Tbilisi, Georgia.

The Eagles are led by captain Will Magie at flyhalf. Right wing Apelu So'oalo was born in Samoa and raised in Hawaii. Some of the players he will face on Tuesday are relatives.

The players have been in Georgia for jsut a couple of days, as they spent their training camp in the London Area. During that time they played the Ireland Exiles and lost 18-15. Flanker Alec Gletzer played especially well, and is rewarded with a start on Tuesday.

The USA and Samoa kick off Tuesday morning at 6am EST, 3am PST
