Mike Friday has added Pat Blair to the Men’s Eagles Sevens prior to the eighth round of the 2015-16 HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series in Singapore, replacing Ben Pinkelman.

Pinkelman returned to Colorado State University to fulfill academic commitments. Nate Ebner should see action this tournament as Carlin Isles recovers from an injury.

Pat Blair played with the USA Falcons in their Cup triumph at the Las Vegas Invitational tournament in March. At the HSBC Canada Sevens he made his eighth Series appearance in helping the Eagles reach the Plate Final.

The Eagles are in Pool B at HSBC Singapore Sevens with Canada, France, and New Zealand.
