Re: Friends of the USA Rugby Women’s National Team Donation Fund (PDF)
Dear Women Eagles Supporters,
Regaining status as one of the top four women’s rugby playing nations in the world is the ultimate goal of the USA Rugby Women’s national team. The proving grounds for this competitive aspiration will be Edmonton, Alberta in August for the iRB Women’s Rugby World Cup (WRWC).
The Women Eagles enjoyed a successful tour of the United Kingdom and Ireland this January, returning with a 3-0 result. Fifth-ranked Scotland, Ireland and England A were unable to stop the U.S. women’s national side in their quest for international success. The experience gained from this tour leads into two upcoming Internationals against fourth-ranked Rugby Canada in June. These tests will be the highlight of a summer rugby showcase in Boulder that will include the USA Rugby College Men, Women’s U-23 and Women’s 15s All-Star Championships June 9-11, as well as tests for the USA Rugby Women’s U-19 National Team. This is all in anticipation of the Women Eagles departure for WRWC 2006.
The USA Rugby membership has extended their generosity in many ways. The Board of Directors have supported the Women’s National Team both individually and collectively through generous offerings and providing great representation for all regions of the rugby community. Any and all additional support from the broader rugby community will help make the difference in achieving a favorable result at the pinnacle of all women’s rugby competitions, WRWC 2006.
Participating in the success that the USA Women’s National Team will experience at this year’s World Cup competition will be a reality for those who choose to lend their financial support. All are invited to contribute through the “Friends of the USA Rugby Women Eagles” donation fund. All donations vary to fit all supporters’ needs and interest. The USA Rugby Women’s National Team appreciates the generous support to the program through the efforts of the United States Rugby Football Foundation. Without the support of the greater rugby community these athletes would struggle to reach their full potential. It is your donations that make it possible for members of the Women’s National Team to represent their country and achieve the title of the best in the world.

Check out this page here to order the bands. I have the light blue one, it’s pretty cool and says “Hit Like A Girl”.
In other international women’s rugby news, Kazakhstan will look to defend its Asian Women’s Sevens title and the Gulf Ladies will also be playing at this 7s tournament in Uzbekistan this week.
By the way, Uzbekistan … not so easy to spell. 😉
