Women's rugby sites

The Irish men's teams had a great rugby week - winning the Heineken and the Magners league between them. I was a tad more excited when my* team Munster won the Magners but it's great to see both teams doing so well. These are some of the best sites covering women's rugby.  If you know of any others, please leave a comment and I will add them to the list later on. And of course all the national and club websites have a section dedicated to their women's teams.

Scrum Queens
Probably the most comprehensive site dedicated to women's international rugby. You can find everything from fixtures, interviews, news on 7s as well as the regular game to match reports. Best part is maybe the national reports with news on each team.

Singapore Women's Rugby
Most countries have their own sites, I like this one as it's completely separate to the men's and really focuses on what their women's team is all about.

Almost there! Eliza Downey Ireland

Women's Ruby History
Something different - an archive of media stories on women's rugby. It hasn't been updated for a while but the historical info on the growth of the sport is fascinating.

A woman's place in the maul
Great line. This is an interview with Australian Jula Singer on a mixed-gender site. Interesting read. 

Women's Rugby World Cup
Info, highlights, photographs and video from the 2010 World Cup. That should keep you going until 2014 when the games will be held in ... TBC  Apparently an announcement is due this year, as the tender process is still open.

That photo is a real winner! The look on the face of the girl holding the ball... she knows she's gonna eat it, but damn if she isn't hanging on for all she's worth.

Great links, Niamh.
