Three players with Utah ties were named to the USA Rugby squad for the preliminary camp for the Rugby World Cup 2015 Qualifier series on March 22 and 29 against Uruguay.
Former Utah Utes football and rugby star John Cullen, former Cougars standout Shaun Davies and current BYU player Kyle Sumsion were all named to the team. Cullen plays for men’s club Seattle-OPSB while Davies plays for Life Rugby.
The two-leg series against Uruguay starts in Montevideo and ends in Atlanta’s Fifth Third Bank Stadium at Kennesaw State University.
The Eagles will train in Atlanta from March 11-15 and scrimmage Life University the final day before Tolkin selects 11 players (give or take) to travel to Florida, where the overseas professionals will arrive to camp.
