Guardian positive about the future of women's rugby

Clearly the moon was blue last night - one of our national newspapers has acknowledged the existance of women's rugby! Admittedly the article only appears on one of the Guardian's journalist's blogs, rather than actually making the printed page, and it only narrowly avoids being totally patronising, but still its a start.

The article concentrates mainly on Saracens, and in particular Maggie Alphonsi, but does include reference to the 2010 World Cup. However what is interesting is the writer's last couple of paragraphs where she gives her own opinion about the direction the game should take, at least at club level. It does betray a certain lack of knowledge, but nonetheless coming from outside the sport its an interesting view.
