Women's Rugby Super Series

High level women's rugby returns this summer as Alberta(Canada) plays host to Canada, England, USA and New Zealand. These are four of the best teams in the world and I am pretty excited about this. Doubt I'll make it down to Calgary or Red Deer but I definitely plan on getting tickets to the Edmonton games. Especially since Canada will have to be looking to avenge their heartbreaking loss to England last summer.

15's is alive and well (in some country's). Sounds like a good serie. England are struggling a bit after some of their WRWC winners retired so it will be difficult for them. New Zealand will be looking also for revenge after their (for them) poor world cup.

Should be a good set of games. Hopefully it's streaming at the very least, or maybe even on TV.

Ellerslie and CRP are both set up to record and I think stream games so at the very least it should wind up online. No idea about the Red Deer facilities as I've never been there. I'd suspect we get close to packed houses for the Edmonton/Calgary games or at least a decent amount of butts in the seats. Unfortunately the FIFA WWC is happening at the same time with some late round games conflicting with the Super Series game times.

FIFA WWC Schedule: http://www.tsn.ca/fifa-women-s-world-cu ... e-1.216611
- Mountain Time(Alberta) is an hour ahead of Pacific Time for anyone who may not know.

The good news is that CTV has the broadcast rights to the conflicting games so TSN could maybe show the WRSS games. I'd hope TSN would at least promote and broadcast the Canada games since those girls do represent our beloved Maple Leaf. CFL games might conflict as June 27th is a doubleheader with Esks vs Argos @ 3pmMT and Winnipeg vs Riders @ 6pmMT. No CFL games on Canada Day( :( ) and July 5th should be alright as Argos vs Riders is at 1:30pmMT. Not sure what else could conflict with the WRSS but I'm sure I'm missing a couple things.

Great idea this tournament. But I think it would be more interesting to have Australia and not England, as Australia doesn't have any competition to play.

In the future it could become a 8-teams competitions in the shape of Junior Trophy.

Nothing to do with a lack of playing opportunities. If Australia wanted to play tests the playing the opportunities would appear, and if they had wanted to go to Canada they would have been certainly have been welcomed. Rumour is that they turned down several chances to play XVs between 2010 and 2013. They are now saying that they might play tests in 2016. The ARU's commitment to women's 15s is almost non-existant.

USA 13-39 England
Canada 22-40 New Zealand : a pleasant game but with too many errors, especially for locals.

Highlights from the Canada / Black Ferns game. Pretty great turnout for a women's match, I think. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2kHOhg ... e=youtu.be

Canada did well in the first half, but seemed to fall apart a bit in the second. How was the USA/England game? Anyone watch it?

New Zealand 26-7 England
USA 36-28 Canada

Canada loses on Canada Day. This is the worst I've felt since England smashed us in the World Cup.
