Coming after a near two-year hiatus from test match rugby, the Women’s Eagles will look to earn a little reprisal against their rival to the north after two losses to Canada in November, 2019. Following three daily training assemblies and a handful of intra-squad Stars vs Stripes matches over the last year, the Eagles finally get a chance to do that.

As has been the case for many years, the border battle between these top ranked teams is always a marquee matchup. Currently ranked #6 in the world, the United States will come out hungry for an upset against #3 Canada and carry momentum into their matchup with #1 England later in November.

“We are very pleased to finally get home test matches back on the schedule for the fifteens program,” said Director of Women’s High Performance, Emilie Bydwell, “Daily Training Environments have been a crucial part of Rugby World Cup preparations and keeping momentum, however quality tests against top nations are quintessential as we near the one-year mark to New Zealand. Having that opportunity in front of family, friends and fans at home is exciting. Expect these two matches to be as energetic as test match rugby can be.”

“Coming off two successful West and East camps, it is great to have the opportunity to take this next step in our preparations and assemble the top 50 athletes together,” stated Women’s Head Coach, Sandro Fiorino. “The Rugby World Cup kicks off for us on October 9, 2022, and everything we do between now and then will be to ensure we are performing at our best in New Zealand.”
