Andrew Suniula to play for the Cornish Pirates
Andrew Suniula made his international debut for the USA Eagles in 2008 vs Japan. He has scored two tries in seven internationals and has been used as the USA´s first choice inside centre in 2010 and 2011. His tries vs Portugal and Russia both contributed greatly to victories for the United States. At New Zealand 2011 he is expected to form a centres combination with Paul Emerick. Suniula´s move to England will see him playing regularly at a higher level than that in the United States. He is to be the only North American player at the Cornish Pirates who are one of the leading second division teams in England having finished second in the 2010-2011 RFU Championship.
