Men, Women Eagles 7s Add Residents

U.S.A. Rugby confirmed today that Martin Iosefo and Nate Augspurger have joined the Eagles 7s program full-time as residents in Chula Vista. Both of those were widely reported before today's release but the announcement does confirm that the core group of players like Zack Test, Perry Baker, Carlin Isles, Folau Niua, Garrett Bender, and Madison Hughes are returning. One name missing from the list is Andrew Durutalo but given that he just played at the Halloween 7s the odds are high it was just a clerical error. We'll update you when we find out. In addition to the guys on the U.S.A. Rugby/USOC payroll, the team has three WCAP players on the roster in Will Holder, Ben Leatigaga, and Mattie Tago.

On the women's side the team has added a number of new players under new head coach Jules McCoy. Like the men's side, the core group of players returns with the likes of Lauren Doyle, Vix Folayan, Kelly Griffin, and Alev Kelter all set to make runs at the Olympics. Joining them are a number of up and coming players, including APRTC pair Ashley Perry and Rachel Griendling, already capped Eagle Richelle Stephens, and the best come back story in rugby Jillion Potter. Also returning to the fold is Jessica Javelet.

Take the jump to see the squads.
