Rugby League's promotional campaign begins...

I've only just picked up on this, so my apologies, but tomorrow will see the RFL kicking off its campaign to attract women (and girls) into its version of the sport with a big "come and try it" day at Richmond College and The Stoop ahead of the Rugby League game between Harlequins RL and Wakefield.

It was only a couple of weeks ago that I wrote about the grant the RFL had received, and other changes to their game - I didn't expect to be proved right so quickly! As I discovered since that there is one women's Rugby League team in this region (in West London) but no girls teams (though I get the impression from some responses that girls play adult RL from about 16 instead of 18 in Union).

Anyway - best of luck to them. Anything that gets women and girls playing any form of rugby is a good thing, and if women's RL does become a summer sport then (as long as the fuddy-duddies in Twickenham don't get all silly about it) cross-code links will only be to the benefit of both sports.
