Golden Girls 2017

While the rest of the world went into panic mode at the news from America, World Rugby focussed on next year’s Women’s World Cup.

The Women’s game is advancing fast and the skill levels are very impressive. Last night England beat France 10-5 in a game that was televised.

The most significant moment was when loosehead Rochelle Clark replaced Vickii Cornborough to win her 114th cap and thus tying Jason Leonard’s England record.

I don’t know if Fiji will qualify for next year’s tournament in the Asia/Oceania group – if they do they might well look at bringing along Esiteri Bulikiobo –

Blimey!

Canada lost in the 2014 final against England by 21-9 – if you scroll down on the above link to the second video, you’ll see that they also have Caren Meerman – an aggressive prop coming through their ranks – maybe for 2017?
