Women's rugby takes over Twickenham

Or the museum at least.

The World Rugby Museum at Twickenham will be staging a special exhibition on the history of women's rugby, starting on 12th August, to coincide with the World Cup. While the exhibits will mainly look at the development of international rugby (former England captain Gill Burns, right, donated her international shirts to the museum this week), it will include a number of exhibits on the early history of women's rugby, including the story of Emily Valentine (as first revealed on this blog back at the start of the year), and the curious French game of "barette" - a sort of vigorous form of touch - which was also covered here last year (and probably what all U12 rugby may look like if RFU's trial goes nationwide).

If you are in west London from the middle of the month it will be well worth dropping in. Admission £6/£4. Call 020 8892 8877 to book a stadium tour in advance or for up-to-date opening hours.
