Chris Martin returns as head coach and he’s supported by backs coach Renee McLane. They’ll oversee a squad with a lot of experience, including 15 players who have already represented the USA Rugby South internationally. Additionally, 15 tour-goers were also on the Mary Graham All-Star 15s squad that finished third in Tier 1 this past December.

Three players will be making their international debut (*) with the Panthers, and another five will mark their first appearance in a USA Rugby South senior (^) jersey.

 

As for Trinidad & Tobago as an opponent, there is certainly some familiarity there. At the 2023 Rugby Americas North 15s Championship (July 13-16 @ Jamaica), the Americans played T&T twice. The South lost the first meeting 6-5 and then rebounded with a 30-0 victory in the title match. Stay tuned for more details from the 15s-only regional all-star program.
