WPL face Amazons in season opener

The 7s and 15s seasons may have run into each other this year, but we’re not letting that slow us down—the more rugby the better! The 7s Nationals campaign carried through the first couple of weeks of fall practice, culminating in a 9th place finish and bowl championship in the Furies’ first appearance at the tournament since 2014.


Both WPL and D2 have a demanding fall schedule ahead, with WPL starting out with a home fixture against the Twin Cities Amazons. The Furies lineup has a mix of old and new faces, with depth at each position.

Here’s the starting lineup:

  1. Jocelyn Richards
  2. Leni Dworkis
  3. Brooke Branson
  4. Rian Van Nordheim
  5. Chloe Jex
