Women's Rugby World Cup and Rugby Benefits

It's about that time of year. Teams are gearing up for 15s practice to begin, 7s season is just about over with just nationals left to go for club teams. So how can you get your rugby fix this weekend? You can start off your Saturday by going to the World Cup Viewing Party at the Globe Pub. The Globe is a great spot for watching rugby games, opens early, good beer selections, and they also do traditional English breakfast. The Globe was Packed for the FIFA World Cup, and let's get people to pack the house for the Chicago North Shore current and former players on the Women's USA Eagles.  Kate Daley will continue as captain for the team, as she helped lead the team into the "Final 14".  USA Rugby said

The Women’s Eagles had two goals against Kazakhstan – win and score four tries... they accomplished exactly what they needed to by defeating the Nomads, 47-7

The pressure will definitely be on, but the Eagles have some of their Sevens Players in this World Cup to help ensure more scoring. Former North Shore plays Sylvia Braaten had back-to-back tries in the last match. USA will be taking on New Zealand who are coming off of a loss to Ireland. The Black Ferns have won the last four World Cups, and the team hasn't lost a World Cup game since a defeat to the United States in the semi-finals in 1991, until Tuesday's game.

After you are done cheering on the USA, go home and rest up. Saturday night, the Sirens will be having a Benefit Concert at Cole's Bar. There is no cover and no wrist band, and with Cole's being a 3am bar, it will go all night long. Dead Beat, Foz the Hook and Pure Remedy will be the bands playing. They will also be having a drawing with cash prizes, booze, and Siren's rugby gear. All of the funds raised will go to helping with the cost of their trip to Kenya's Safari 7s.
