Smit & Tseng Tour with Eagles

Seniors Melissa Smit and Jossy Tseng have just concluded a week-long tour to England with the USA Rugby Women’s National Team, the Eagles. The tour, dubbed the “First Sports International England Tour,” consisted of test matches against the Nomads, England A, and England Women. The Eagles ended the week 0 for 3, but in the words of Eagles coach Kathy Flores, the tour “will provide us with the type of pressure we need to develop these young players.” Smit and Tseng both earned starting positions at different points throughout the week, with Tseng playing flyhalf and Smit at wing (as well as kicking for points).
