Following a week of training camp in the warm spring weather of Glendale, Colorado, the Women’s Falcons are now set to face off with a WPL Selects side, Saturday March 26 at 12 p.m. in Golden, Colorado. The exhibition match is free and open to spectators, located at the Colorado School of Mines.

The match will not be streamed live, however a highlights package will be posted to USA Rugby YouTube. The WPL Twitter will also provide live updates on Saturday.

Head Coach Rob Cain noted on the assembly, “It’s been a really positive few days together. You can see how hard each person has been working away from us through their regional hubs. The benefit of that hard work is that this week has been about creating a platform for the Pacific Four this summer, implementing our key learnings both from the autumn tour and our most recent game in Wales.

The WPL Select side brings together 23 players across nine league clubs, staging an exciting preseason fixture ahead of the 2022 Women’s Premier League season. Starting Saturday, April 9th, WPL players will once again take the pitch for a 10-week slate, all leading to the 2022 Championships in June.

Cain concluded, “I know the players can’t wait to be out there competing alongside each other. We do hope that our many supporters will make the trip and see the inspiring potential of each team in person.”

Saturday’s match will conclude two spring competition assemblies for the Women’s Eagles player pool, following a training fixture and victory against Wales two weeks ago. With both assembly windows now complete, Cain and staff will begin evaluation for this summer’s Pacific Four Series rosters and eventual player selections for the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand.
