There are no official details on who will be on the North American team, but it's expected that some fairly well-known names from overseas will be asked to participate. At least one-third of the lineup is expected to be USA players, and all but maybe one or two of that squad will be capped.
Meanwhile the Lions have already named their touring squad.
