Two All Blues Chosen to Represent Team USA on the International Stage

Congratulations to Katy “Kit Kat” Augustyn and Bulou Mataitoga for their selections and recent performances on the pitch! 

Seasoned rugby veteran Kit Kat was on tour to France this past November with the USA Women’s Eagles.  She came on the heels of the domestic Women’s Premier League competition, where eleven other players also helped their respective teams compete, before heading to France.  Two test matches were scheduled against France, 10 months ahead of the exciting Women’s Rugby World Cup 2017 event in Ireland.

Bulou recently got her first 7s cap competing in the first leg of the HSBC Sevens World Series in Dubai.  It was also during the Dubai 7s where she scored her first career try for the Women’s Eagles in the game against Brazil (check out the video here: http://bit.ly/2iEGCuq).  We hope to see more of her at the next series stop in Sydney in February 2017!
