Fil des actus du rugby féminin -

  1. Leaders struggle on both sides of Channel

    With international rugby breaking the rhythm of the club game, upsets are always possible this time of year as Lille discovered when the travelled south to third-placed Toulouse. The home team’s solid defence withstood everything thrown at them until the last minute (helped by Lille being repeatedly low on numbers due to yellow cards), by which time Toulouse were 6-0 ahead with penalties either side of halftime from Camille Boudaud.

  2. France U20 confident of win and record crowd

    Back in 2011 England’s U20s beat France, before going on to beat Scotland, Wales, USA, Canada and South Africa – which amounted to every other U20 team in the world. It was a perfect year – but for the teams that have followed it has been a very different story.

    Since 2011 England U20 have won just four of their 20 games (one against South Africa and three against Canada) – a record that includes a remarkable 13 winless games against France, who they meet again on Saturday, in France – where they have never won.

  3. 6 Nations - Round 3 Team News


    Scotland v England, Saturday February 23, 2018, 7pm (Live on Sky Sports Mix HD)

    Two players from the same club will captain their countries against each other this weekend with DMP Sharks duo Katy Daley-Mclean and Lisa Martin captaining England and Scotland respectively. The two players will also be in direct opposition to each other, with both wearing the number 10 shirt. 

  4. Barbarians line up second game

    Giselle Mather will take charge of the team once again for the clash at Aldershot Military Stadium on Saturday, March 17 (15:00).

    Mather is hoping to choose from up-and-coming players from the Tyrrell’s Premier 15 clubs as well as some of the veterans who helped the Barbarians launch their women’s programme with a win against Munster last November.

    The game comes on the final weekend of the women's 6 Nations which rules out a raft of players.

  5. 6 Nations: Where the teams stand


    France looked like their usual fragile away selves in round two and have been inconsistent over both games so far, while doing enough to win with something to spare. 

  6. England U20s biggest ever win over army

    Report: RFU

    In their first match of 2018, Jo Yapp's side to withstand driving rain and wind throughout the game which made playing conditions difficult.

    The breakthrough came on seven minutes as wing Brooke Clarke broke away and sprinted around the outside, with centre Phoebe Murray's powerful run shortly after seeing her score on her debut.

  7. Ireland and Scotland celebrate 25 years

    Edinburgh, Valentine’s day, 1993. The day was one of those rare February days in Scotland that did not start with rain. This is not what defines the day in history, however, as this dry day saw the first Scottish and Irish women’s rugby teams compete in both countries first international at Raeburn Place. Ireland had travelled and had a lot to prove, but it was Scotland who took the honour of winning the inaugural match in front of a crowd of over 1,000 people, with two tries from scrum-half and captain, Sandra Colamartino. The final score was 10-0.

  8. Germany record big win against RAF
  9. Nestor takes on Australia role

    Nestor is a a former Perth Spirit coach and an assistant with the Wallaroos last season and takes over from Paul Verrell.

    There has been a significant improvement in the focus and investment in women's XV in Australia in recent years following the success of its sevens programme. 

    The women's XVs programme is now aligned with the ARU's high performance department - a move that also helped nations like Ireland when they were originally initiated. 

  10. Ireland get off the mark

    Two tries from skipper Ciara Griffin and one from Megan Williams was enough to secure a win, in a game where the home side had to wait till late on to put a dogged Italian side away.

    Major positives for Ireland were the performances of key players such as flanker Claire Molloy and captain Griffin, while there was much improvement in the backs where Katie Fitzhenry showed her attacking ability in the wide channels.

  11. England cruise to Welsh win

    England looked to have learned their lesson from last week and came out firing, on the attack from the opening whistle and dominating the early exchanges.

    Eventual player of the match Poppy Cleall got the scoring rolling when she drove over following some powerful work up front by an English pack that was dominating the tight exchanges. 

  12. Scots make French work for their win

    Rain was a major factor at the start of this game with a continual downpour causing handling errors from both sides with a ball behaving like a piece of soap. As a result, although France had most of the possession, attempts to pass quickly – plus Scotland coming up quickly in defence- invariably resulted in errors or the ball being lost.

    After 18 minutes the power of the French scrum won them a penalty, but Jessy Trémoulière hit the post.

  13. Moore stays on as Black Ferns coach

    Moore gains a new contract on the back of his susccess with the team since his appointment at the end of 2015, with 15 wins and just one loss from 16 Test matches and a 2017 World Cup win.

    Moore said despite the team’s recent success and impressive record of five World Cup wins, there’s no time for complacency.

    “It’s an important phase for the Black Ferns as other countries are getting better and better. We saw that first-hand in Ireland. 

  14. New Zealand award new 7s contracts

    Waikato’s Shiray Tane returns after last playing for the Black Ferns Sevens in 2016; Lyric Faleafaga graduates from a training to full contract, while six new players have all progressed through the New Zealand Sevens Development programme.

    Having recently moved overseas, Kayla McAlister is not included in this year's squad. 

    Black Ferns Sevens Coach Allan Bunting said the growth in the women’s game has unearthed talented athletes and that he is looking forward to working with the new players.

  15. 6 Nations - Round 2 Team news

    England v Wales
    Twickenham Stoop, Sat, 10 February, 12:15 GMT

    Elinor Snowsill and Sioned Harries are both named to start  this game, with the experienced duo having returned from 7s duty in Australia last week.

    They are two of three changes to the team that beat Scotland by a point in the opening round. Snowsill replaces Jodie Evans at fullback and Harries, who will win her 50th cap, starts for Natalia John.

    The other change sees Rhiannon Parker start at scrum-half.

  16. 5 things to watch - Round 2 Women's 6 Nations

    1 Goalkicking

    The goal kicking in round 1 was disappointing. Five of England's seven tries went unconverted, half of France's were missed while a straightforward penalty went astray, all three of Wales' tries failed to be converted, while Scotland missed both of theirs. 

    Though neither France nor England would rue their missed chances, in the tighter games, goal kicking could become a real issue in determining this title. 

  17. Pearls show Australia's depth at Super 7s

    Australia's rising stars win the Brisbane Super 7s

    Australia, playing as their Pearls development team but fielding some players from the winning team at the Sydney 7s, were winners of the Brisbane Super 7s this weekend, a tournament that probably had the strongest line-up of teams this year outside the World Series.

  18. England power to big first win

    A shock never looked on the cards, even with Italy managing to hold England to a 7-7 score at halftime, and England's power and experience was to the fore in a brilliant second 40 minutes. 

    England's driving lineout proved a threat right from the off and it was from one of those fine efforts that the first score came on 6 minutes with the excellent Sarah Bern getting on the end of a patient shove. 

  19. France too strong for Ireland
    The inexperience within the Irish squad showed over the 80 minutes, with some poor defensive errors handing far too much easy yards to the French throughout. 
    But Ireland will take some solace from an improved second half performance, when it looked at times like the French were going to run away with it after racing to a 17-0 lead. 
    Jessy Trémoulière helped France to a promising start with a burst down the wing and it took a Lindsay Peat try saving tackle to keep the score sheet empty after just a minute. 
  20. Wales edge past Scotland at home
    Wales were the dominant team over the first 40 minutes, from early on when Jodie Evans had a shot at goal after just a minute, right up to a try just before halftime.

    With Carys Phillips leading well up front, the Welsh pack were in control at the scrum and Scotland struggled to deal with their well organising driving maul. 

  21. Six Nations: Round One Team news

    Wales v Scotland, 
    Friday, February 2, Colwyn Bay, 18.00

    The news from the Scotland team includes the selection of Jade Konkel at prop instead of in the back row while captain Lisa Martin returns to inside centre, after featuring at scrum-half in Scotland's last match.

    Four players could make their Scottish debuts as replacements. Prop Siobhan McMillan could join her sister Louise, a flanker, in the pack, while Jodie Rettie, Siobhan Cattigan and Mags Lowish could also win their first caps

  22. Six Nations: How the teams are shaping up


    If you could blot out the loss in the World Cup Final, England would be going into 2018 on the back of a highly successful year that included a 6 Nations title and strong summer and Autumn series. 

    And while publicly England's players and management have put on a positive face about how 2017 unfolded, the World Cup Final loss must still sting with the RFU having thrown every resource possible at its top players to win the title last summer.

  23. Australia achieve perfection in Sydney

    Australia scored 213 points to win the second round of the World Series, and conceded none. It’s a sort of utter dominance of a tournament that we we have only ever seen before with Brazil in the South American Championship, which has looked on it as evidence of their being on a totally different level to all of their opponents.

    Now Australia, at the highest level of sevens, against the best teams in the world, with the Commonwealth Games and World Cup just around the corner have achieved this remarkable feat you have to ask if they are now on a different level as well.

  24. Sydney 7s has its trans-Tasman final

    29-0, 50-0, 43-0, 29-0, 31-0. That is Australia’s route to the final in a tournament that features the best of the rest of the world. It is an astonishing level of dominance – no team in World Series history has ever reached a final without conceding a point along the way (indeed only Canada had ever won a pool without conceding a point before, in Langford in 2016).

    New Zealand’s record is almost as dominant – 48-7, 33-12, 31-0, 36-0 and 26-0 – but without that rock-solid defence from start to finish.

  25. Sydney Day 1: England edged out of QF

    Sydney has been reorganised to ensure that all games take place in the main stadium. The first day saw all of the pool matches for the HSBC Women’s Sevens run alongside the Men’s first round of pool matches. Day two will see the women’s quarter- and semi-finals, with the remaining men’s pool matches, and the final day will see the men’s knockouts and the finals of both tournaments.
