Both players were stars of the U.S. this last season. Both were a part of the team that finished second at the Houston 7's and the team that claimed third at this summer's World Cup. Additionally, both players played in three of the four legs of the Women's IRB Sevens Series with only Bydwell missing Guangzhou. Marchino and Bydwell could still play for the U.S. on the Series but without passports and an overall eye to 2016, it could become more difficult for them to gain consistent selection. No word yet on how this may affect the men's program.
