The USA Women’s Falcons have named 12 players for the Los Angeles Invitational taking place Friday, Feb 28 to Saturday, Feb 29 alongside HSBC LA Sevens.
Fiji came out on top against South Africa for the second time in eight days, although this time their prize was not ninth place but a first HSBC Sydney Sevens title.
The two USA speedsters are tied for the all-time Eagle lead with 199 Sevens World Series tries. Bank on it, they’ll both get to 200.
But which one will get their first?
Quick. Look back to the 2018-19 Men’s Sevens World Series season, where Fiji won the Series, and the USA made every Cup semifinal round and finished in second overall; it would be logical to assume that at least one of those two teams would be hunting for a top spot in the standings again a few months later. No?
