LOUGHBOROUGH, UK. – USA Women’s Under-20s head coach Ricardo Ramirez has named his match-day roster to face England U20s in the opening game of the Tri Nations Cup Saturday, KO 10 AM ET, at Loughborough University. 

While a live stream will not be available, score updates will be communicated on twitter.com/usarugby. Following England, the USA U20s will face Canada in the final match of the annual international competition. 

“After our scrimmage against Canada and England, the staff were able to see players step into the roles needed for their first match. Players have been pushing both themselves and each other which has allowed us to see the growth in a short period. We’re looking forward to opening the Tri Nations Cup in a competitive first game.”

ABOUT THE USA U20S

Under-20s or U20s (formerly known as Junior All-Americans) are athletes ages 19-20 years old who participate in a club or collegiate level rugby program. Unlike the High School and Collegiate All-American programs, there is no requirement for U20s to be attached to a scholastic program; athletes can compete with a senior club, professional team or university program. The U20s participate in formal international competitions such as the U20 Women’s Tri-Nations Cup and U20 Men’s World Rugby Trophy. The U20 program is primarily 15s, but expected to expand in to 7s as World Rugby offers additional opportunity for competition.
