Czaplicki was a finisher in USA’s 2014 win over Spain. Spain only scored one try and three penalty kicks while the USA scored three trys, one conversion and one penalty kick.

Head coach Tony DeRemer traveled to attend the game.

“I was so proud to watch her out there in her USA jersey and succeed at the game that she loves,” DeRemer said.

In the opening game of the 2023 Pacific Four Series against Canada, Czaplicki started at wing and played until the 75th minute of the match where she received a yellow card for a deliberate knock on call.

“Autumn’s aggressive and we know that,” DeRemer said. “She was playing aggressive and working hard.”

Canada scored eight trys and five conversions. USA scored two trys, two conversions and one penalty kick. The final score was 5017.

Team USA and Czaplicki will be back in action in July in Canada to continue the 2023 Pacific Four Series. The USA will face Australia in their next match on July 7 and then take on New Zealand on July 13.

Both matches will be held in TD Place Stadium in Ottawa, Canada. Both matches will be live on FloRugby.
