I’m not sure why this is surprising. Male sporting participation is down in many sports and not just rugby. Short forms of a sport e.g. 5 a side football or 20 20 cricket are catching on. Amateur boxing only had 3 or 4 rounds anyway.

Women’s sport is on the way up. With various public health and educational initiatives encouraging women to play. Long may it continue

I realy don't see for why male and female sport should be the same.


Terrible, I'm surprised they are allowed to get away with it, surely they don't have to make so much noise to hit a tennis ball. I'd issue bans for it, soon shut them up.

Geez some of you appear to have an acute case of "small man syndrome" and feel threatened by "gal" rugby players.

Pathetic I say. I am willing to bet that you couldn't keep up with the top teams.

It is now 2017 and we all have free will to participate in the sport of our choice.

By the way dipsticks if you haven't heard men grunt on a tennis court, you are full of :bs:

Get over yourselves and please do try to get out of your own head and join the rest of us in modern sport.

CAB, Justic there is no point arguing with sad little sexists who want just the world to stay the same because of their own insecurities.

Womens rugby at grass roots level is far superior technically to mens.

The big bosh style complete with arrogance and ego hasn't come into it yet. It's full of wonderful running rugby in the true spirit of the game.

Also far more pleasurable to coach, women actually listen, learn, and execute!

Its like Hockey and Socher(usa). There is more skill, and if the rules were played strictly, that is to stop intimidation etc, the women would beat the men.

I suppose the length of pass and kick would not be the same, but they would know what they can do and not try to copy.

Sorry Bouch, we was talking Tennis and the Banshee brought rugby into it.

Of course your comment is correct but it is a tad random given the thread.

As for Justic and Amazons ... cool, just don't see why it should be the same.

I watch a man at the breakdown for his robbin' skill ... I watch a woman for her robe.

Just because Women want to play rugby doesn't mean that we have to get the same delight out of it.

No skin off my nose.

Different strokes and all that.

The girls can be violent as well ... England v New Zealand is tasty sometimes.

As for grunting - it's inappropriate on a rugby field, when playing rugby.

:D

I see nothing wrong with womens rugby, to my shame ive only watched it on TV. I coach with a guy that coaches a womens team and he loves it, as they soak the information up like sponges. Far too few women participate in team sports after leaving school.

Not a lot these days but I'll share this little Gem that just happened. Today is my Daughter's Fiancée's birthday and it's flipping freezing and he cycled by on the way home and we gave him his presents and they went to leave, Daughter driving he on his mountain bike. We were in the kitchen cutting the cake into shares for everyone and he puts on his riding gear, I was amazed how shiny his head gear was and I innocently blurted out ..Jees Chris do you polish your helmet? Oh my gawd I nearly died, just about feinted I was laughing so much :-)

My daughter was born in Hampshire btw but I gave her permission to play for england if they selected her even though I brought her up Welsh :D
