They Stoop To Conquer The Women’s World Sevens 2015

I have just returned from two days of glorious weather and glorious rugby at the Twickenham Stoop.

This was my first media mission covering women’s rugby and it was an absolute joy

The skill levels were superb and some of the bone crunching tackling would have made some international male counterparts wince

Emily Scarratt of England and Portia Woodman of New Zealand pictured below looked class acts on day one in everything they did


The amazing scenes on day one as Spain beat the All Blacks was something I will never forget

It is not my intention to detail the tournament scores and winners in this article, but to attempt to make people aware, that if they haven’t watched women’s rugby, than you my friends are really missing out   

My only criticism is the mad cap idea to stage the Cup and plate finals across the road in Twickenham

This would have been absolutely wonderful had it taken place in front of the 80000 fans already in situ for the men’s tournament, but to schedule the games for the end of the day when everyone was leaving was a real no brainer

Tickets priced at £10 made this un missable hopefully next year there will be more spectators I for one don’t intend to miss it
