More squad announcements for the first stop of the HSBC Sevens Series in Denver, CO. Austrlia and New Zealand are the latest to come out. Australia’s Cassie Staples comes back to the squad and Madison Ashby will make her debut.

For New Zealand, 19-year-old Montessa Tairakena will make her debut, a year on from winning a sevens gold at the Youth Olympic Games. Portia Woodman and Tyla Nathan-Wong are still out for injury.

With Tokyo 2020 on the horizon, we expect to see new combinations this year across the board. Could make for some exciting upsets and interesting matches!

USA speedster Naya Tapper hopes to light up Hong Kong Sevens https://buff.ly/2AqQ9Me

4:00 PM – Sep 26, 2019
Naya Tapper looks forward to Hong Kong Sevens. Hong Kong is one of a record eight stops for the 2019-20 women’s HSBC World Sevens Series.

“I think it is very empowering for us and it’s part of our true entrance into the rugby world because Hong Kong is one of the biggest tournaments where the players will probably experience the biggest crowds and largest cheers,” said Tapper.

“So to be part of that team playing in Hong Kong I think is a big accomplishment, not only for USA as a team but our country as a whole. It just shows that we are trying to engrave rugby into the community and playing tournaments like Hong Kong will give [women’s] rugby more exposure in the USA and around the world.”
