USA Falcons player Megan Foster says that getting together with a bunch of players you don't necessarily know well and creating a cohesive whole is a learned skill, and perhaps one of the harder skills to learn at the elite levels of rugby.

Foster, who plays for Life West and was a standout at Chico State University, has been preparing for the Vancouver 7s with several of her teammates at the Washington Athletic Club in Seattle, Wash., and working with Atavus as well.

The team is looking to win, but Foster said they know the main goal is developing. 

"Vegas was really fun ... it was kind of long, a four-day tournament for us," said Foster. "But I think we did achieve our goal of developing."

Foster also talked about her first rugby game (where she scored two tries!), and what playing at Chico State meant to her.

"Every [at Chico State] was really awesome," she said.

The Falcons, with Foster on the squad, won the Plate at the Women's Elite 7s in Las Vegas. They finished 1-2 in pool play, but made the Cup Quarterfinals. After a close loss to Tribe 19-17, and then beat WR Ravens and Team Quebec to win the Plate.
