Women All Americans Picked to Face Ontario

USA Rugby'a Women Collegiate All-Americans have named their squad to face the Ontario Storm Friday night at the University of Toronto, Scarbarough rugby pitch.

Head coach Martha Daines brings an experience side on the 2014 Canada tour. The WCAA team features several returning players including fullback and captain Erin Overcash, second row Bailey Johnson and front row Baylee Annis. Plus a batch of new comers like Nicole Benedetti and Megan Foster to round out a solid touring side to face the Canadians.

Ontario looks to use the two-game series as a warmup for their Canadian National Women's League Championship series. Last year saw the Storm come in second place in the NWLC and both coach Kevin Jones and captain Cindy Nelles look to make a run at the to spot in this years championship.
