For too long, sports in Britain have followed girls and gender lines thinking about rugby haven't had the opportunities to pursue their aspirations. The success in England last month was a turning point for women's rugby which will support a growing number of girls to play with rugby. It certainly feels like something has changed in their sport, and I'm extremely excited about only what the future holds for women's rugby.

Their 33-year old forward Rochelle Clark told BBC they 'm not prone to retire until I'm a world champion." Clark was on two of the past final losing teams. It isn't that anyone has shocked, the results have been there leading up to the World Cup with wins on the tremendous states in recent spells. There are 1800 teams across England where you are welcome to provide the match a "ATTEMPT".
Rugby has it's own culture which they believe many players gain from, and Iwant to research that culture together with the show and picture non-rugby players why it is worth playing. they spent more time together with the rugby team subsequently studying for your engineering degree (first profession), however they wouldn't trade that for a second. There'll be a maximum of 2 sides relegated from every league at the ending of the season as well as the total minimum of 1 side.
