The Women’s Elite division at the Las Vegas Invitational featured two round of games this afternoon. Seven teams opened the competition with records of 2-0 ensuring that day two will be an incredibly competitive affair.

The USA Selects, which is made of up mostly the Eagles squad and coached by Eagles coach Jules McCoy, impressed in their first two matches. The Eagles blanked Brazil 36-0 in their first match and defeated Stars Rugby II 40-5 in the second game. Kristen Thomas dotted down several times as the Selects cruised to victory.

Team Great Britain, the Atavus All Stars, South Africa, Stars Rugby I, and the France Selects all finished the day undefeated.
