Had a two-screen set-up for this and the men's international but ... well, the stream was bobbins.

Women’s rugby, is at the standard of NWC under 12’s

 

im all for promoting it, but it needs to develop quick

That's the problem though. In OZ and NZ, it is developing very quickly so England and France need to throw some money and/or effort at it pretty quick if they want any competitive international scene. Look at the WC results where OZ beat England 38-0 and NZ beat them 52-4

This game was so well promoted it was streamed on a platform that couldn't cope with a handful of people watching. And that was it.

I agree with the above.

However, how many people, even ardent RL followers, go and watch their own club's womens' team ?

Having actually been to a few womens' games I know that the attendances are extremely low - and yes, possibly a NWC under-12s' game attracts more  - and if so why spend lots of money on something that doesn't receive public support ? I know that some people might say that more publicity could bring it more interest but the same could be said for any amateur team yet they are not being given that same publicity. As much as publicity might be given to particular groups, surely the attendances show how much interest the public really have about them.

As "gingerjon" said above, "This game was so well promoted ...... a handful of people watching......".  Therefore well promoted and just a handful watching, so where's the real interest in it ?

Yes, I understand that in this current climate of political correctness and equality for all that everyone should be treated the same but surely those people should also be providing the same quality of service to justify that equality and providing their employers with an equal percentage of income for the money spent on them in comparison with teams who attract greater audiences.

Some might say I am being sexist but no, I am being practical - how many reading this actually regularly go to watch their local womens' team ? The only way the womens' game will flourish is if more people actually attend games.

England are doing that and will reap the benefits. The problem they have is that they have no real competition, as the game showed, France are a long way behind. I’d like to see England tour Canada

Where being battered with it at present and I’m all for development but you can’t sell something that isn’t worth watching...

i feel sorry for the championship, that’s a competition worth promoting and watching.
