No surprise - French navy are the strongest of their armed forces teams. A game against the British Army would be really interesting.

Nah, that was in 1944. :D
How to grow rugby worldwide?
Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

In an Inter Services Cup between the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy, the Air Force won 69-3*, helped no doubt by *I think* 4 players (mentioned in commentary) being in a Tyrrells Championship club.


*Other results (including the scoreboard at the ground) had the final conversion being missed (leaving it at 67-3), but commentators and me believed it had gone in - replay is up at 'The Forces Sports Show on YouTube.

First little steps for women rugby in Iraq: some women playing in a pause of the men's match Kurdistan v Baghdad, in Erbil.
The group of players was composed by women "from Erbil, Baghdad and foreign communities"

Women players in the World passed from 2.4 millions in 2017 to 2.7 millions in 2018, according to the annual World Rugby report.
It would be an awesome increase (+12% !), but this report is notorious for its frail reliability. Let's hope those numbers are correct!
Men players passed from 6.7 to 6.9 millions in the same frame of time

World Rugby will not release the detailed data behind these headline figures (despite repeated requests), so you are maybe correct to have a few doubts.

Time to time a new "oldest photo of a women rugby team" appears and I've lost the knowledge of which is really the oldest women rugby photo known. But this one of 1917, taken in Wales, repurposed by Cardiff Rugby Museum and re-repurposed by Twickenham Rugby Museum's twitter (where I've seen it), is very pretty
