GRR: Women Senior Rugby
One of the most dangerous attacking wings in women's rugby, Laura Cabrera was more than just that.
An ornery, unflinching rugby player she played with the attitude of a blindside flanker, just with startling pace and a finishing flair. Cabrera was a standout for the USA, but also made her mark domestically. She was a massive part of the Berkeley All-Blues' dominance in the 1990s-
A smooth and intelligent flyhalf out of Penn, Ines Rodriguez was one of those players who just glued everything together.
A superb playmaker in 15s for Penn and later for top-level clubs in Pennsylvania, Rodriguez was capped eight times by the USA.
Recruited to play rugby at Virginia after joining UVA as a field hockey player, Heather Hale became a star for the Atlanta Harlequins and the USA.
Keenya Warner was capped eight times for the USA, which may not be a lot, but she made them count.
The vice captain for the 2006 Rugby World Cup team, she commanded great respect in the midfield as one of the best centers in the tournament. She helped lead the USA to a 4-1 record and a 5th-place finish that was lower than they truly deserved.
