A singular honour

Probably the most comprehensive and up-to-date listing directory of women's rugby clubs can now be found here. It seems to be the private project of one man - Steve Uglow of Canterbury Rugby Club in Kent - and covers not just women's clubs, but al clubs across the country, as well as referees societies, governing bodies, and so on.

He does - with the odd exception - limit himself to just adult clubs that play within a league structure. Indeed he actually says he does not include student or school sides.

With one apparent exception. Just one. Us.

Yep - it would appear that - of 100 or more junior girls teams in the country - only Letchworth Girls' is worth including on Steve's website.

I'm ever so slightly touched by that. Not to say chuffed and rather pleased.

Anyway if ever idlly wandering the web and want to get a flavour of the adult game, or if someone should ever suggest that women's rugby isn't a significant sport, go over to Steve's page and take a look at how many clubs there are across the country.
