Another new "ladies" rugby site launches

Hot on the heels of Ladies Rugby (mentioned below) my attention has been drawn to another new site launched to fill the gaping chasm that is media coverage of women's rugby.

UK Ladies Rugby confusingly also has the title "Ladies Rugby" as its masthead, but was obviously beaten to the URL by the earlier site. Leaving aside the touching inability to spell the word "England" at the top of the screen (like I should talk about spelling...) it is, I think, a rather better designed offering and includes several resources that are (so far as I am aware) unavailable elsewhere - including a geographic database of English women's clubs, organised by name and by county.

It is just adult clubs (and moreover English ones, despite the site's name), but other than that its very impressive with details of addresses and leagues. I can't spot any obvious clubs missing from the list (Saracens is put in the London list, before anyone says anything). Maybe the editors could now add in the girls teams too?

A little lacking in news content - so stick to Women's Rugby Review for now (and a certain other blog perhaps...). I'll add them to our press release list, though. And the site has a sponsor or two, which is impressive.

All in all its good stuff. One might ask why independent sites such as these should need to appear in order to give access to basic background information and news that you'd think should be easily available "elsewhere", but then "elsewhere" is due for a relaunch (soon we are told... admittedly some time ago) so maybe things will improve. One passing matter of note, though - why "Ladies" again? I really really thought this was terribly un-PC, especially in sport. Maybe I am mistaken...

  1. Are the girls teams not part of the ladies clubs ?

    If there are clubs that only have girls teams, I could add them to the relevant county pages, a-z, and maybe a tab under the leagues specifically for girls rugby ?

    ps - well spotted with the spelling, now sorted !
