Girl Power

I have said before that Women’s rugby is worth watching. There are high skill levels and I can honestly say that I played in some games that weren’t as physical as many played by the girls today. Mind you I always avoided any rough stuff wherever possible – as you’ll know if you are a regular here.

England have some outstanding athletes like Heather Fisher, Danielle Waterman and of course, Maggie Alphonsi. The good news is that TV has woken up to the fact and there is a lot more coverage – which is certainly better than the reality junk that many channels are turning out – there is now one about grannies who are on the game for fucks sake (I’m not making that up by the way).

The recent 7s tournament showed just how skilled the women’s game is on a world scale.

This link is  a video of one of the Eagle ladies – who knows a bit about tackling – as you’ll see!

  1. And yet the picture you choose to highlight your post about girls rugby is… one where they’re all naked. Way to highlight the skills and physicality. The subtle differences between the mens and womens games. The increasing viewership, participation, information on the national leagues, the structure… nope, none of that, we’ll go with the charity calendar picture.

    So sadly predictable.
