1) Noon - New Zealand Black Ferns vs. USA Women Eagles

2) 3 p.m.- Ireland vs. Italy Test Match

This will be the third home contest for the Men's Eagles versus the Maori XV.

It will be interesting to see the attendance number for the larger, Soldier Field venue, and the offering of three diverse matches in the day.
