Women Eagles Pick Starters To Face England

The Women Eagles will have one last chance to pick up a victory at the Super Series in Salt Lake as they take on England on Saturday. In preparation for the match the coaching staff, which will be led by Associate Head Coach Peter Baggetta as Pete Steinberg is away on a personal matter, has named their starting line-up.

Like with all the line-ups this tournament it includes a group of veterans as well as some newcomers. It also comes close to what a team the U.S. might field at next year's World Cup might look like. Hope Rogers, Catie Benson, and Kathryn Augustyn man the front row while lock Stacey Bridges will captain the team once again. BYU's Jordan Gray will get another start in the back-row along with Bitsy Cairns. In the backs Jen Lui and Kimber Rozier are the halfbacks while young players Nate Serevi and Saskia Morgan starting at center and win respectively.
