USA RUGBY PRESS RELEASE – The USA Women’s Under-20s have named their match-day 23 for one final contest of Tri Nations Cup 2019 against Canada on July 24, KO 12 PM ET, at Loughborough University. While a LIVE stream won’t be available, score updates will be provided on

Head Coach Ricardo Ramirez has made four changes to the starting XV with Kapoina Bailey in at No. 8, Mary Jane Pasioles in at scrumhalf, Karissa Postula in at center and Clara Lemal-Brown suiting up at wing. 

“After our last match against England, the team had numerous positive takeaways,” said Ramirez, describing the learning experience that came with facing a polished English squad. “When a team falls and can find the growth lesson, it is impressive. Players returned to training with the proper head and spirit. Heading into the match with Canada, we are looking at a few changes to create a different look.

The Under-20s fell to England U20s in the opening match of their Tri Nations Campaign last Saturday. Wednesday’s game will serve as the USA’s finale in the three-team tournament, after which England and Canada will play each other on July 28.
