Aldon Campbell will make his full debut for Bermuda against Mexico in the Rugby Americas North Championship this afternoon.

Campbell is one of four uncapped players included in the squad for today’s game, with Jahniko Francis, Mandela Caesar and Chris La Placa all named on the bench.

Bermuda have made several changes to the side that was well beaten in Atlanta by USA South, with an all new front row that sees Conor McGlynn come in at hooker, with Darren Richardson and Dustin Archibald the props.

Thomas Greenslade slots in at blindside flanker to accommodate McGlynn’s move, while Jahan Cedenio and Aldo Campbell will be used in impact roles off the bench.

After the team’s lack of pace was cruelly exposed by USA South, there is a change on the wing, with Antonio Perinchief-Leader coming in to the side instead of Tashon DeSilva. Nigel Burgess keeps his spot on the opposite wing.

Aldon Campbell will partner Patrick Graham in the centres, with Caesar a ready-made replacement for either.

Dan Cole keeps his position at full back, while Tommy Edwards will start at fly half with Tom Healy at scrum half.

Today’s game kicks-off at 4pm Bermuda time and is being streamed live on livestream/com.
