A U.S. Women’s National Team is currently training in Dieulefit, a small town in the South of France. Previous discussions with CEO Matt Van Houten had indicated that participants are all paying for their own expenses and would be composed of National Team pool players based in Europe. The team played a friendly match against National Team coach, Christian Latulippe’s club, Le Pouzin, losing 34-14. The photos and an article on the Le Pouzin website show that a few U.S. based players also found their way to France and that veteran players Kathy Darling and Lisa Dunn will be playing for Le Pouzin this season.
Team USA is scheduled to play Le Pouzin again on Friday and then will play two lower division clubs on Saturday and Sunday.
