Lady Ruggers

Last Wednesday I enjoyed watching the first half of the ladies’ collegiate rugby championship. (No spoilers, please.) While the ladies appeared skilled and tough like the gents, I did notice three differences:

1. There was less variation in size amongst the ladies. The height and weight differences between the forwards and backs were much smaller.

B. Perhaps as a result of the previous, the game was much less chippy. In the gentlemen’s game, one expects to see the forwards giving each other the business.

III. In the gentlemen’s game I have never seen a Number 8 cry for being sent to the sin bin.
