I hope England Rugby will reverse their decision on the Red Roses

England have already 'reversed' their decision. Calling it 'cyclical' Contracts will be issued for Red Roses again. They're also basically telling Tyrell's clubs to start paying wages.

The Super W would be the perfect place to join for 2019. 5 Aussie teams + 5 Kiwi Teams.

They didn't exactly reverse it per say, they were changed with different conditions etc..

I know 2 players who were not happy with the new contracts particularly after seeing the first one before it was changed and then "reversed"

John any updates on what is happening with England?

Well India haven't disgraced themselves in their first two tests, pretty encouraging and they should have plenty of potential - IF they are given a regular test schedule and other Unions in the Rugby Asia region are also committed to XVs so we get more tournaments.

I've seen part of today's game and the play was better than as I expected. The tempo was quite low, sometime it seemed almost a slow motion if compared with the best nations games, but the handling skills higher than my expectations and you could have seen also some good offload. They are not improvised group of players, they have a base of tactical and technical skills.
I'd like to know how a match between them and the '80s european teams (when women rugby in Europe was still quite naive) would have finished

IRFU turned down women’s Test series in Australia
Australian Women’s Rugby proposed the fixtures and offered to cover accommodation

https://www.irishtimes.com/sport/rugby/ ... um=twitter

Seriously, ARU were covering the costs. what hard would it be for Ireland to send the team?

Everything except the flights though, which is still expensive. How prepared would the girls have been though? We’re talking about a 3 week trip for a majority group of amateurs who would have all needed advanced notice to prepare for a tour of this scale. It’s not like a trip across the sea to France which can be done over weekend, the girls would have been away from their work for almost a month.

I agree there a lot of if's and logistics to consider, but everything must start somewhere. The first question when did the ARU put feelers out about doability etc... I understand about being Amateur but it does make me wonder sometimes how serious they take women's development in general

Knowing the ARU it probably would have only been considered a few months ago. I doubt this was planned last year when the Ireland series was initially confirmed. It’s one of these things that on paper should have been an easy yes, but when you dig deeper there’s probably a bunch of logistical issues they have to consider so that Ireland could send their best team for 3 weeks. Most women’s tours aren’t as long due them having jobs full time. I would hazard a guess that if the ARU left it too late to ask it would have been difficult for many of women to get that much time off work.

Judging from posts on twitter, the women feel let down by the IRFUs decision so it seems that they would have been willing to get that much time off work? I doubt turning it down was due to the women's (un)availability. I guess that it was probably down to money - the IRFU did not have/were not willing to spend the money for the air tickets.

Assuming they take a squad of 30 plus 6 coaching staff, and looking at the cheapest return flights from Dublin to Sydney you looking at around $68,000 for the trip. Is the ARU paying for the flights between the cities? If not you’re looking at around an additional $3,600 for a trip to Brisbane, and an additional 4,600 for the flight to Melbourne. So you looking at a minimum of around $76,000 for the tour. Not a huge expense but that’s still a lot of money that they are having to lay out. In fact they may end up spending more on the series than what the ARU would be even if you factor in accomodation is being taken care of. I can understand the frustration but I can also see how Ireland could actually be getting the raw end of that deal.
