GRR: USA U20s
The USA Women's age-grade teams return from Canada 0-4 and perhaps a little bit humbled, but certainly the teams showed improvement over their series with two of the Great White North's best women's collegiate programs.
The USA U18s won the Corendon Summer Tour U18 bracket with a 47-20 defeat of Belgium U18s.
The USA U20s beat a tough Netherlands team 31-27 to go 3-0 and win the U20 bracket in Amsterdam. Tia'i Vavao was named MVP of the tournament.
The USA U23s lost to Delta 22-16 in a game that, based on previous scores, would have been expected to be much more lopsided.
OTTAWA, ON – The USA Women's U20s and U23s are set to play Queen's University of Kingston, Ont., and the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees in a two-day series starting Sunday.
The USA U20 men have named their squad to face the Netherlands in what is essentially the Corendon Summer Tour championship game for this age group.
Both teams are 2-0 and both have shown plenty of ability. The USA U20 team has been explosive in attack and logged over 50 points on both of their games.
After a short turnaround the USA U18s and U20s both won well in the second round of the Corendon Summer Tour in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
The USA U23s did not have a game Wednesday and are in the middle of preparations to play Delta on Saturday. (Delta is a Dutch-based franchise playing in the Rugby Europe Super Cup, which starts its season in September.)
