I really fear for RWC qualifiers.

I'll be honest, the Union funding clubs en masse is such a weird thing from over here.

I agree is an anachronistic concept its the RFU greatest strength but also it's weakness.

I wouldn't necessarily call it anachronistic. But USA Soccer, one of the richest soccer federations in the World doesn't subsidize amateur rugby. But I suppose in a way the model is the same, they do subsidize the NWSL. But that's a professional league rather than an elite amateur league.

there's the difference as you stated: Professional. I would like to see the RFU heading down that path. Elite Amateur has it's place but keeping funding it... not so sure

German XV national team restarted the preparation. A pity they renounced to the Euro championship

The 15 women are also starting to feel their way around the new "normality". From October 16 to 18, the Phoenix team will also complete a course in Heidelberg to which national coaches Dirk Frase and Paul McGuigan have invited the following players:

RSV Cologne: Luise Lauter, Melissa Paul, Vivian Salim, Sophia Terwiel
FC St. Pauli: Josi Pora, Luise Adamski, Vivian Bahlmann
Heidelberg RK: Theresa Hauth, Svetlana Hess, Muriel Weigel, Tina Schucker, Mette Zimatt, Nicola Beet, Johanna Hacker
SC Neuenheim: Steffi Gruber, Amelie Harris, Jessica Neues, Elisa Trick, Monica Yee, Laura Schwinn, Sarah Gossmann, Clara Tauschek, Maxime Rath, Katharina Bader, Lea Predikant
SC Germania List: Gesine Adler, Elena Korn, Laura Dervari, Yona Rossol, Cara Senneka, Nina Schäfer, Katharina Epp, Mona Reinisch
UPS Jena: Johanna Kruse
SG Bayern: Rebecca Pöhls, Caroline Pintsch
