(Exclusive) Eagles Women’s Captain Spoke of First Match – Lara Vivolo, Assistant Women’s Coach at West Point, and Rugby Today columnist, generated these quotes from Tiff Faaee, USA captain.
"It was our first time playing with that team on the field, overall we were happy with our level of play. I felt that our depth on the bench is very strong. Having players like Alev and Hope coming off the bench in the second half means there is no let down, the level of play improved in our 2nd half vs Italy. We need to get as many points against Spain as we can, and another bonus point...it's going to be a battle for that 4th place spot in the semifinals.”
