Women's international rugby: it IS a hard life...

Following on from the picture a week or so ago of the German women's team relaxing in Rome, I've come across this "motivational" video made for (and about) the Dutch women's team last year (its mostly in English, by the way....).

Basically, it shows the level of training required to be a member of an international women's team - even a relatively unfashionable team that doesn't play in the Six Nations, and (at XVs at least) would be ranked outside the the top 15 in the world.

The video features the team preparing for (and playing in) a friendly match against their greatest rivals, Sweden, as part of their build up for the 2010 European Championship (where they finished 3rd, behind Spain and Italy).

Makes you wonder what England or New Zealand must get up to...
