USA Eagles inside centre Andrew Suniula has signed a contract to play in a new country. The 33 times capped 27 year old has joined Romanian side CM București in what is to be his fourth professional rugby club after having had previous stins in England with the Cornish Pirates and Wasps as well as playing for New Zealand province Taranaki. He joins CM București from the Chicago Griffins, a move which will likely see him receiving crucial game time ahead of the final preparation stages before confirming the Eagles World Cup squad.  


Competition for centre spots in the USA Eagles rugby World Cup 2015 squad is expected to be tight due to the country having unearthed notable mid-fielders since the previous World Cup. In New Zealand 2011 Suniula was the starting inside centre forming a notable combination with Paul Emerick. 

The retirement of Emerick was expected to provide Todd Clever's team with significant problems but the Mike Tolkin coached side has emerged strongly. Under Tolkin both Seamus Kelly and Folau Niua have made their international debuts and have had the opportunity of playing in England. Tolkin has also overseen the return of Thretton Palamo who is now in England with Saracens. 

Together with the three mid-fielders Andrew Suniula is chasing a spot in Tolkin's World Cup squad. Then opportunity of playing in Romania will ensure he is able to obtain game time when it matters most. He is to play in the SuperLiga a competition that consits mainly of Romanian players but not exclusively. Namibia and the Pacific Island nations have players in the East European country.
