There has been controversy surrounding round 5 in women's division of the 2014 International Cup. With 7 teams one team has a bye each round. For the final placing round, the 7th place team gets to sit. The race for 6th place came down to percentage points between Tonga and the USA Liberty. The percentages were tight but Tonga has a slight lead. Apparently.
Round 2 of the 2014 International Cup features three USA vs Canada matches. After a convincing win against the US Freedom on Sunday, Canada's Northern Lights are looking for a similar result against the USA's B squad.
The US Freedom start off their campaign with a match against their North American neighbors. Canada has won 3 of the last 4 matches. Both teams aim to improve on their finishes at the last International Cup where Canada was runner up and USA took 3rd.
USAFL Freedom Head Coach Leigh Barnes announced the squads for the 2014 Freedom and Liberty teams. The Freedom is the USAFL women's national team and will be representing the USA in the 2014 AFL International Cup in Melbourne, Australia from August 9 to August 23.
In a surprising move, the USAFL will be bringing their development team, the Liberty, to compete against local Victorian teams during the off days of the International Cup.
