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.

I could have sworn the new CBA was going to get the Super W players some type of wage...but when Castle was asked about it her words were as poor as her...http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-03-02/w ... rs/9503626

The reality is there's no money. We couldn't even afford to run 5 mens teams any longer.

News from Swiss Rugby Fed.

Unfortunately the test-match of the Swiss Women Team is cancelled because the opposite team (sélection des Alpes) will be deprived of most of her players. Indeed, the rugby club of Chambéry has to catch up a late match of the French championship (match which had been cancelled a few weeks ago, because of the snow).


Was due to be played Sat 17th before the men's test match vs Poland.

Tonga have apparently banned girls from playing rugby. This is against World Rugby's regulations.

I've read a version slightly different: the minister of education asked (suggested?) an high school to not let play boxe or rugby to the girls to not ruin their femininity (something like that) and to not turn away them from the cultural traditions. Still bad, but a bitt less heavy than a ban

Yes - its defintely a minister in the education department outlawing rugby in state schools. The Tongan RFU (indeed it seems other government ministers) do not agree, indeed seem pretty confused by the whole thing.

It has been claimed by some that it was a general ban on sport for all due to the effects of a recent cyclone, but the letter is pretty clear:

"To the Principal of Tonga High School.
I write this letter with humility and authority in respect of the tradition of Sport. It is forbidden for women to play sports like rugby or boxing. Please cease activity like this.
The reason why I am against it is that it damages the sacredness of femininity. As Minister of Education I uphold the protection of women. It is important for future generations that Tonga remains firm in this duty, in the Pacific and in the world.
If there are any misunderstandings or queries in relation to this, you can call my office on this number."

Apparently that letter was just the initiative of a single person and the feeling of the nation is far from that point of view.
Women rugby in Tonga seems not in danger, even if this sort of statements could weaken the recruitment efforts

Sevens. Two games, 1 before Men's Germany-Russia (2 x 10' = 44-7 for Germany), 1 after (3 x 7' = 60-7 or rather 63-7 for Germany)

There is a new format for Liga Iberdrola All Star game (April 14). Last year it was Spain v Madrid+Foreign All Stars, this year it will be Spain U20 v All Stars voted by MARCA readers on the following website:

No semifinals and finals in the Liga Iberdrola?
I hoped to see triumphing La Coruna, where italian Ricci plays, but if I've understood they're destined to the third place without the chance to overcome Pozuelo and Majadhonda in the play-off

Exactly. They ditched playoffs this year to make it a home and away league. And it has already been extremely hard both from a financial (in spite of Iberdrola help) and human POV (lack of players in peripherical clubs). Getxo and INEF Barcelona weren't well prepared for such a jump from 7 to 14 games and people here have fingers crossed not to see another Madrid team be promoted... It would be the sixth out of 8.

Spain gathered an Emerging XV national team, good to see this. I think Italy never had a women "A" national team
I hope they could be organize also some matches, soon or later

Yes, well, it's the Spain U20 side expected to play the All Star game. Depending on who talks about the project they call it Spain U20 or Emerging. Anyway quite a few of them have already earned senior caps.

Well, Italy has neither an U20 XV national team, so you are anyway a step beyond us : )

This isn't what World Rankings nor last WRWC say, unfortunately. Sigh...

BTW, I don't know if you saw that Ricci is in the voting shortlist for All Star Game.

Yes, I tried to vote for her but for some reason I wasn't technically able to do it.
When Italy played vs England in my city, few months ago, some spanish team-fellows of Ricci came here just to cheer for her
