New York Athletic Club and Old Puget Sound Beach have announced their lineups for Saturday's Super League final, to be held at Magnuson Park in Seattle.

OPSB will be without prop Oliver Kilifi, who is attending the funeral of his mother.

Both teams have players in camp with the USA national team - Mike Petri, Toby L'Estrange, Lou Stanfill, and Brian Doyle for NYAC, and Pate Tuilevuka and Andrew Durutalo for OPSB - and both teams will be able to field those players on Saturday. All six are starting.

Twenty-four of the 44 players listed played rugby in college in the USA, representing 19 different schools. Eighteen of the players have played international rugby at age-grade, collegiate, 7s, or 15s level. Eight are currently in USA national team squads for this past 7s season or the upcoming 15s test match season.
