10th NOV USA V. Samoa

Postby TheStroBro » Thu, 08 Nov 2018, 21:11

USA Roster:
1. Titi Lamositele
2. Joe Taufete'e
3. Paul Mullen
4. Greg Peterson
5. Nick Civetta
6. John Quill
7. Tony Lamborn
8. Cam Dolan
9. Ruben De Haas
10. Will Hooley
11. Ryan Matyas
12. Paul Lasike
13. Bryce Campbell
14. Gannon Moore*
15. Blaine Scully (C)

Bench

16. Dylan Fawsitt
17. David Ainuu*
18. Dino Waldren
19. David Tameilau
20. Hanco Germishuys
21. Devereux Ferris*
22. Will Magie
23. Tim Maupin

*Debutante

Would be the debuts for Moore, Ainuu, and Ferris. Personally I would have called upon Boyer first, but things may have been in the way. He'll have only been in camp two days and not ready to play whereas Ferris landed in Spain with the team or just after. Boyer is more similar to De Haas than Ferris is to Davies or Augspurger.

It seems there will be an official streaming provided by promoters.

USA should have too much for Samoa although they’ll miss MacGinty. I know nothing about Gannon Moore and Ferris so it’ll be interesting to see what they can do. Glad to see Lasike back too. USA by 10

You do know that Samoa has never score more than 27 points against the US, right? And that we're significantly better since the last two times we played them? Now...if we were playing Fiji? I'd take your points.

It'll be on the World Rugby Facebook / YouTube channels (geo-block restrictions not withstanding of course)

Do you have that on a press release somewhere? It's not on their schedule: https://www.world.rugby/where-to-watch

I'm thinking it's going to be a tight game... Samoa by 3 or less.

Nah, they're slumping. Who have they beaten recently? Scotland? Pfft. They're nobodies.

USA win 30-29 with the last kick of the game. Cracking strike there. Clock says 4 minutes left but referee calls time...

Knowing TV crew from Spanish league, I have 100% trust on referee's clock.

Considering the fact that if this game was played in the US we’d probably only get half as many fans, this is a good attendance. I’ve criticized the test matches in Spain before as they didn’t seem to make sense but I’m fine with it given how rugby mad y’all seem to be.

A Basque journalist who often covers Real Sociedad soccer games estimates it at 8,000 but says there isn't an official attendance released yet.
