USA Name Roster for SA Rematch
National Teams - USA Women

The USA has one more opportunity to exit the Women's Nations Cup with a win, and coach Pete Steinberg has named a more experienced starting lineup to help accomplish that goal.

Sam Pankey moves from fullback to inside center for the South Africa rematch.

Shaina Turley, Kate Daley, Sadie Anderson, Vanesha McGee and Sam Pankey get their fourth starts of the tournament, while prop Jamie Burke returns as field captain.

Stacey Baker returns to the field after being removed from the Canada game on a stretcher. Laura Miller moves from flanker to lock, and Pankey and Pam Kosanke swop positions at inside center and fullback.

South Africa defeated the USA on the last play of the game on Tuesday, so the Eagles will be looking for revenge in the third place match.
