RFL keen to carry on Women’s momentum

The RFL have committed to ensuring the momentum from the last women’s season isn’t lost amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Super League season was suspended without a game being played, as the game was suspended as a whole in the week leading up to round one.

As such, Women and Girls Talent Manager Stuart Barrow has been holding webinars for coaches of the Women’s teams.

Work is also carrying on to ensure some rugby can be played in 2020.

Barrow said: “It’s been such a frustrating time for everyone involved with Women’s and Girls’ Rugby League, as in all other areas of the game.

“We ended 2019 on a real high, with title sponsors for the BWSL and the Coral Women’s Challenge Cup, more media coverage than ever including live Sky coverage of the BWSL Grand Final, and our England Women making two groundbreaking trips to the Southern Hemisphere to play in the World Nines and then go to Papua New Guinea.

“Everyone was excited to go to another level in 2020 with the expansion of the BWSL to 10 teams, and we’d had a great start to the year with the three Origin matches in February which were arranged with a specific focus on the huge opportunity we have to boost the profile of Women’s and Girls’ Rugby League in this country in next year’s World Cup.

“Then it all came crashing to the halt just as the Challenge Cup was getting underway, and we were looking forward to the start of the Super League.
