On Sunday at Worcester, England's Womens Fifteen comprehensively beat the Spanish Team 28 points to 12. The game was a rousing affair played in foggy conditions which at times obscured the goal posts and scoreboard. Nevertheless England's ladies showed that so far as ambition and commitment are concerned, they are a match for the men's game. The scrummaging and rucking was at times explosive, the back play adventurous and the only area of play that could be said not to match the man's game was in the matter of lifting at the line-out.
For those who have yet to follow the ladies game, the match on Sunday was a good advertisement and if there is anyone who doubts the game's suitability because of its inherent physical nature, the next England Women's International (England v Scotland) will be on Sunday March 4th at Richmond. England play France at Northampton on Sunday April 8th.
