Women's Six Nations Rugby saved

And then it was over. The Six Nations tournament council met yesterday and decided not to change the format for the women's rugby tournament down to two-tier contest.

It's probably not too far a stretch to say social media especially information fed through women's rugby-site Scrum Queens played a significant role in this decision. Watching Twitter fill up with support for the women's teams was very heartening to this cynic, not to mention a number of articles in newspapers in all six countries. 

So we have another exciting tounament to look forward to next year, and perhaps all of this extra attention will bring a few more players into the club leagues as well.

Coverage of yesterday's meeting here and here.
