USA prop Titi Lamositele is reportedly being allowed to play for the USA U20 team at the Junior World Rugby Trophy.

Lamositele is under contract at Saracens in England, but the club is allowing Lamositele to join the Junior All Americans before returning to Sarries after April.

The news is important for the USA U20s, which went through a difficult 2013 and started the 2014 cycle late. The USA is slated to arrive in Hong Kong in about a month, and will play Hong Kong April 7, Georgia April 11, and Tonga April 15 in pool play.

Lamositele is the youngest player ever to garner a full USA cap, which he did when he came on as a sub against Canada August 17 in Charleston, SC. He subbed on again a week later, and then earned his first start against Russia November 23 in London.

The 5-11, 256-lb prop turned 19 on February 11.
