About the Team

The USA Women finished in 6th place in the 2015/16 World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series taking the silver medal in Toronto.

“It is a very exciting time for USA Rugby and I am very honored to name the first USA Women’s Sevens rugby team to compete,” USA Women’s Head Coach Richie Walker said. “Most of the players that I have selected have a considerable amount of experience. Every player has played on the Sevens World Series and some players have played 15s for the USA, as well.”

Team USA are in Pool A along with Australia, Colombia, and Fiji – a tough group to come out of given Australia is favorites to win it all.
