Ashley Kmiecik and Erica Cavanaugh each scored a try in the Women’s Eagles’ third test against France in eight days in front of a capacity crowd in Carson, but it was not enough to overcome Les Blues, with the visitors coming away with an 18-12 win.
With the Women’s Eagles’ first-ever victory against France last Friday and a record 20,181 attendance at last weekend’s Men’s Eagles match against Ireland at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston, Texas, rugby in America is officially on the rise.
Thirty players will convene in southern California for the Women’s Eagles’ upcoming tests against France. Head Coach Pete Steinberg has announced his roster to square off against the French in a three-match series.
The new campaign celebrates what it already means to be a rugby player in the United States, and unites coaches, referees, players, fans, women and men alike behind a creed that will inspire the new American rugby tradition.
