Most watched women's rugby video?

This one is a bit unusual. A music video that features women's rugby, and by clocking up over 4,000 hits in four days it is probably the most popular women's rugby video ever!

Even though it is a music video it features proper women's rugby - played by real players, not models or actors. Okay, its a German band - the players are from leading German club side St. Pauli - but even so its rather noteworthy.

Some real effort and expense has also gone into the video - its not just some random training game put to music. The song seems to be the usual thing with the singer confused about her feelings towards her partner - and so the players are labelled "Me" and "You" ("Ich" and "Du) to illustrate her internal battle.

The Alin Coen Band are not exactly at the centre of German music, but have made the charts in the past and may do so again. If they do German women's rugby can only benefit.
