Women’s Rugby

Women’s Rugby

Women’s rugby is one of the fastest growing areas, inspired by the success of the England Women (the Red Roses), and locally by our own NLD CB Women’s team who performed magnificently to reach the final of the Gill Burns Division 3 Final in June 2022.

How to get into Women's Rugby

Rugby is a game for everyone, and the Women’s and Girls’ game is growing phenomenally!

If you (or your daughter) have never played, and want to give it a try, the best first step is to go down to your local club – the ‘Clubs’ link below will take you to contact information for all clubs in the NLD region, many of these clubs have a Women’s section.

Additionally, there are RFU-supported initiatives to support the growth of the Women’s game, including Inner Warrior and The Touch Union
