From Rugby Pioneers, a 1922 photo about women rugby. In fact the game is barrette, but according to the caption it's just a women version of rugby. I had previously seen some photo of a barrette team and I noticed that they all wore the basque hat, but I didn't know that they wore it also during the game!

A bit strange article from China Federation, describing the trip through the nation that the rugby president embarked in to visit some people: a waterpolo coach, suffering by a disease (it seems that rugby and waterpolo are currently cooperating, in China); the rugby women national team assistant coach, him too in hospital due to fatigue; and the parents of a young women national team player, Tang Minglin (you may see her in this good gallery of images, where also an italian physical coach appears: http://www.womenofchina.cn/womenofchina ... 2340-1.htm)

http://rugby.sport.org.cn/news/2020/0706/337950.html

Here is the long translation, if someone is interested

The party committee of the small ball center went deep to the grassroots to send warmth to encourage the training team to devote themselves to training
2020-07-06 08:15 China Sports News   
  In intense training competitions, athletes and coaches need to invest for a long time with high concentration. Since the outbreak of the New Coronary Pneumonia epidemic, many athletes and coaches have entered the closed training stage in order to prepare for the Tokyo Olympics. It is difficult for them to reunite with their families, and they have paid more than before. Not long ago, Chen Yingbiao, director of the small ball center and secretary of the Party Committee of the State Sports General Administration and the chairman of the Chinese Football Association, went to Shandong, Sichuan and other places to visit the sick hospitalized coaches and the parents of the athletes and sent their warmth to their hearts. To inspire athletes and coaches who are in closed training to devote themselves to training more conscientiously.

   "People who are dedicated to sports should not be forgotten"
  In the single dormitory of Sichuan Institute of Sports Technology, Chen Yingbiao and his party met Li Xiga, who was once the head coach of the national youth water polo team. Li Xijia was selected as a member of the national team when he was a member. He represented China in the 1987 World University Games. From 1991 to 1993, he served as the head coach of the Sichuan Provincial Water Polo Team. In 1994, he was selected as the head coach of the National Youth Water Polo Team. After leaving the national team, Li Xijia has been engaged in teaching swimming training for teenagers, and was diagnosed with serious illness not long ago during routine medical examination.
  Chen Yingbiao believes that the development of China’s water polo project over the years has benefited from the hard work of generations like Li Xijia. When their life encounters difficulties, they should be given more care, care and close support.
  In mid-June, Chen Yingbiao and his party came to Chengdu to visit Li Xiga. The single dormitory was very cramped and there was not much furniture. Chen Yingbiao sat on Li Xijia’s single bed, asked him about his condition, and started to take care of his family. Li Xijia’s colleague Pei Ying flipped out the photos of Li Xijia from his mobile phone a few months ago. At that time, he was demonstrating to the athletes by the swimming pool. Two people. Chen Yingbiao encouraged him to take care of his body, rest assured and heal his illness, holding his hand and saying, "No one who has dedicated to sports should be forgotten."
  Li Xiga's eyes were wet. He recalled his relationship with water polo and his life-long struggle for sports. He also combined his own knowledge and made his own suggestions for the water polo project.
  It didn't take long for Li Xiga to say goodbye, and Chen Yingbiao received his WeChat message: "Thanks for the organization's concern, I must be strong!!!" From these three exclamation marks, we saw Li Xiga's firm determination to overcome the disease.
   "Good life and quiet, we wait for you to return to the training ground"
Wang Zhen, who was born in 1983, was in his prime. He worked as an assistant coach and video analyst for the Chinese women’s football team for many years. Every time he trains, he records the athlete’s training and analyzes the athlete’s training and competition. Matters and suggestions for improvement. This is a very time-consuming and energy-intensive job. When other people can finally rest after a day of training, he often has to pick up lights at night, conduct technical analysis, and write training reports. It is with this training method that the Chinese women’s rugby team has changed from the previous training method that mainly relied on experience, so that the training based on data and images has a higher quality.
Scientific rigor and hard work are the impressions that Wang Zhen left to everyone. At the beginning of January this year, he followed the Chinese female olive to Tauranga, New Zealand to participate in the training, and then followed the team to Haikou. He did not leave the team for one step for half a year. .
  For more than half a year, Wang Zhen could only talk and chat with his loved ones through phone calls, videos, etc., to relieve their concerns about their thoughts. In early June, taking advantage of the team's opportunity to transfer training, Wang Zhen hurried back to Weihai's home to visit his relatives. But at this time, the 37-year-old man was finally exhausted by hard work day and night. After repeated persuasion by his family, he came to the hospital for examination. The doctor asked him to stop working and stay in bed for a period of rest.
  Chen Yingbiao learned this and went to Weihai to visit Wang Zhen. Compared with before, Wang Zhen was significantly thinner, but his mental state was very good. He took Chen Yingbiao's hand and talked most about the development of the Chinese women's football team.
  Chen Yingbiao said to Wang Zhen: "At present, the Chinese women's rugby team has transferred to Nanjing for training. Everyone misses you very much. You are quiet and quiet. We are waiting for you to return to the training ground!"
   "I will listen to the doctor, cooperate well with the treatment, strive to get better soon, and meet the sports team earlier." Wang Zhen said.
   "Please be assured that we will definitely train her into a talent"
After saying goodbye to Wang Zhen, Chen Yingbiao and his party moved to Dadeng Village, Boyu Town, Weihai Economic and Technological Development Zone. This is the home of Tang Minglin, a Chinese women's football team player.
  In Great Dengge Village, Chen Yingbiao saw Tang Minglin's father Tang Shourong and mother Liu Xianying. Tang Minglin posted a large photo of her training game at home, with a football underneath. Parents recalled the hard work of Tang Minglin when he was a child. They were very proud of their daughter's ability to go to the national team training competition. Now, Tang Minglin is the backbone of the Chinese women's rugby team. She has a strong physical resistance and a relatively fast speed.
  Chen Yingbiao introduced Tang Minglin's parents to her training preparations for the national team. Chen Yingbiao said: "We have a long-term plan for each national team athlete and will help them grow and progress step by step. Please rest assured that we will definitely train her into a talent."
   Hearing this, Tang Minglin's parents smiled. They said that after the daughter entered the national team, they have made great progress in all aspects, which makes them feel relieved. Tang Minglin’s parents all said that they have a cooking oil workshop at home, and they have a stable income. Both of them are in good health, and they have no worries. The only hope is that her daughter can go all out to train in the national team. In the future at the Tokyo Olympics Achieve good results and win glory for the country.
Chen Yingbiao said: "Caring for athletes and coaches and sending the warmth of the organization to their hearts is to use continuous care to consolidate together, constantly mobilize the enthusiasm of athletes and coaches, and push forward the preparations. We It is necessary to warm the hearts of the strugglers of every industry." (Text: Hu Jianhua Picture: Chinese Sports Pictures)
