Well, it's certainly different...

Posters advertising women's rugby internationals and tournaments  invariably feature exciting action photographs. There are lots of examples - including the one from FIRA the latest European Trophy.

However, the poster they are using to advertise today's finals is a bit different (right). What do you think? I'm not entirely sure it works - and I certainly cannot imagine RFUW will adopt a strategy remotely similar for the World Cup - but it is interesting to see a bit of humour being tried.

The main surprise of the Trophy itself has been the failure of the French A team to reach the final. In fact they only managed third place in their group, losing to both the Netherlands and Spain. As a result there has been a quick reorganisation of venues for the play-offs so as to ensure that the French play at the biggest stadium!

Their game will now be a warm up for the final this afternoon between Spain and Italy. Sweden - the only World Cup team in the tournament - narrowly lost to Italy and will now play Netherlands for third place.
