Coming soon: rugby kit that fits!

At long last a company has been set up that recognises that girls and women are different shapes to men, and that rugby kit designed to fit the latter does not always fit the former. However its not the design geniuses at giant companies like Canterbury or Kooga who have spotted this, but a former player running her own small sports clothing business in London.

Katy Miller, owner of Divasport, began recently with women's sizes and designs for things like tour t-shirts, and has now announced that she will soon be expanding - producing not only playing shorts "without the big baggy bit at the front" but also full kits as well. It is intended that the range  to be launched shortly throughout the UK- will be totally dedicated to women, providing what Katy calls "proper sportswear and accessories, proper sizes, and excellent prices!".

Katy has set up a Facebook page (quite the in-thing this, isn't it?) as well as a website - the latter also providing a noticeboard for women's club news and events (apparently we will be on there soon). Worth keeping an eye on, especially if you have anything that needs replacing for the new season.

    Thanks John for the nice words. Your blog looks brilliant. I will definitely pay your girls a visit next season. I've been so impressed with the U18 girls rugby during the past couple of seasons. Let me know if you have any girls in the U18s that make it through to the England Pathway, I already sponsor Pip Payne (England Under 19) International who plays for Worcester
