Eagle Women Look To Women's World Cup Round 2
Spain has been a tough opponent for the Eagles especially in 7s, but in 15s also.
The Spanish defend doggedly and are good at forcing and taking advantage of turnovers. The USA won their opening game, 24-12 over Italy in a game that produced a bonus point for four tries, but wasn't the Eagles' best work.
The big change for the USA lineup is that Alev Kelter, who came on as a sub against Italy and sparked the attack, will start at inside center.
Two-time try-scorer Kristen Thomas returns at wing.
Player of the game against Italy, flanker Sue Parsons, also returns.
But there's a shift at the front row where Sam Pankey comes in at hooker.
