The starting lineups for Saturday's Pacific Nations Cup opener at Ellerslie
Park in Edmonton have been named. The game will be streamed live at 2pm MT
Todd Clever is earning his 26th cap as captain Saturday, putting him one behind the USA's most-capped captain, Dave Hodges (28).
This game is Mike Tolkin's second as head coach against Canada, and the first for starters Zach Fenoglio, John Quill, Peter Dahl, Toby L'Estrange, Troy Hall and Adam Siddall. Canada is starting seven players who've never suited up against the USA in 15s. Two, Taylor Paris and John Moonlight, have played 7s against the US on numerous occasions.
Each side is starting just one uncapped player, inside center Patrick Parfrey is Canada's, and fullback Adam Siddall is the USA's. Outside center Troy Hall and hooker Zach Fenoglio are capped but getting their first starts in Eagle jerseys, and on the other side of the ball, openside flanker John Moonlight is making his first start and earning his fourth cap.
