11.26.07 – from USA Rugby.com
U.S. Women’s National Team Coach Kathy Flores has announced the team captains for the 2007 England Tour in December.
Veterans of the 2006 Women’s World Cup squad, Kristin Zdanczewicz (Minnestoa Valkyries) will act as Captain and Ashley English (Berkeley All Blues) will serve as Vice Captain for the three match tour, which spans December 6-16.
“Besides being instrumental players in the 2006 World Cup, they are both products of the U-23 program. Kristin is a top rated flanker for the Minnesota Valkyries and Ashley English is the fullback for National Club Champions, the Berkeley All Blues,” Coach Flores said. “We are looking for their leadership and experience to guide this young squad going to England.”
The Women’s National Team kicks off the 2007 England Tour against the Nomads on December 8 and faces England A on December 12 and the England Women’s National Team on December 15.
For those unaware, the Nomads is a mixed touring side of International players who have earned caps for their home countries, so a tough side of faces from other national teams like Canada, Scotland, England, etc.
