A website to watch

I've mentioned SportSister a couple of times before since its launch a year or so ago - and it really is becoming a "must see" (or "must read") for anyone with any interest in women's or girls' sport.

Apart from news, there are interviews with sportswomen (both international and up-and-coming juniors) - including an excellent one with England's Rachel Burford which I am ashamed to say that I missed when it appeared at the end of last year. And if there is any criticism of the site it is that there is now so much on it that these gems are quite hard to find, unless you log in regularly or use Twitter (no RSS link, no Facebook).

At the moment it is majoring in summer sport - including some competitions that those of you who enjoy surfing or other beach activities will be interested in - but its rugby coverage is pretty good in the season (could be better, but they can presumably only cover what they know about) - and presumably the more rugby player readers they get (and hear from) the more they will publish - but in the meanwhile there are also plenty of general articles on equipment, fitness and nutrition. And its interesting to see what is happening in the world of women's sport generally.
