It's bad when you take care of a scorers chart basing on the game sheets, then you are finally able to watch a match and you see that some of the scores in the sheet seem just attributed casually :)
Not so rare, unfortunately

A women XV match was played today in Tehran, between the clubs Datis and Arta. Possibly it was the national championship final match (and perhaps the only match), even if it's not easy to completely understand the translation

Germany leads Belgium 7-0 at halftime, over a snowy field.
Referee is Clara Munarini from Italy

24-5 the final score, so at least the belgians scored their first try in the tournament

Spain beats Netherlands 40-7, much better performance than against Germany but still far from what we need to challenge W6N sides.

We have started a women's rugby 7s team in Kosovo. You can find them on Facebook. If any of you are involved with clubs that might be interested in touring, let us know!

To be fair, I think the Netherlands have improved greatly. They lack a bit of nous, experience and playing time but they have a lot of raw talent running through their side.

If you wanted to write up a short article about it we'd be happy to publish on Scrumqueens.

I'd say Spanish media is giving Leonas more credit than Spanish rugby, probably in the know of what this title is worth without other W6N sides...

2017 :)

Edit: no, Mcruic was right, it must be just a typo and the fixtures seem effectively related to 2018

"More than 15 thousands tickets already sold for the Grenoble match"

Which is the record for a women's match? Last years's 17K in Dublin for the World Cup final?

Yes - IIRC it just beat the 2014 semi-final in Paris.

The existing 6 Nations record is just over 11,000.

Super W kicked off today. New South Wales defeated Queensland 18-0. Skills were actually really good and the girls were tackling hard. Good to see. Brumbies, Rebels and Western Force also have teams. Only 6 rounds this year but hopefully that doubles next year. Maybe the kiwis can add a couple of their ladies team next year.

France won by one point at the last minute in front of 17,400 spectators
Possibly the best match ever, even if I've not watched it. Hope to see soon the highlights

Second Super W match is currently going on between Force and Rebels girls. Force leading 45-8 at half time, one of the Rebels girl got red carded for sliding into a tackle with her feet. What's absolutely shocking is the gulf in class between this game and the game yesterday between the Reds and Waratahs women. The Rebels women looks like they've had two training sessions together and the Force don't look much better. I understand Queensland and New South Wales women are going to have the advantage given the sport is more popular there, but the skills difference between them and the West Australian and Victorian girls is massive. I know they're all amateurs but there shouldn't be this big of a gulf in class between the four sides. I can only assume the Brumbies women are going to fair better given the strength of the sport in the ACT.
