If you have cruised over to WomenEagles lately, be sure and check it out. Colleen the Webmaster over there and the whole Eagle team have added a lot of cool new updates …

• Desktop Action Shots to add to your work or home computer screen
• A Women’s World Cup information section
• A Women’s World Cup History Section
• And there’s all new glamorous head shots of the team on the roster page
So check it out. And remember, first game is against England TWO WEEKS from today kids. I should add a countdown on the sidebar!
And again, if anyone has any information on television broadcasts of the games, American or International-based (but available to Americans), pass it on.
Update: Goff (subscription required) interviewed Hedwig Aerts and Keenya Warner (Hello New York!) and the Eagles say they are ready:
“It’s just around the corner and we open with a huge game against England,” said flyhalf Hedwig Aerts. “We’ll know what we’re capable of pretty early on. Yes, other teams have spent a lot of time together, but it’s not really any concern to us. I know my teammates and I have spent an intense couple of months preparing for this World Cup and we’re ready to take anyone on.”
Update: American Rugby News actually has a brief story on the WNT as well. And it doesn’t feature halftime dancers, but a nice quote from Ashley English:
“We’re doing pretty well and are hopeful to finish in the top two or three. We have wonderful coaches right now and they have really made the team come together in a kind of unprecedented way. Their style of play is a very forward-going style of play that we’ve found really successful.”
