Women and rugby league. It's all about finding players attractive, or being cheerleaders, right?

Wrong.


Hope you enjoy reading this short piece as much as I enjoy researching the subject. :)

Thanks for that - an interesting read. It may just be my browser playing up, but the headline and half of the first sentence was on top of the photo.

Enjoyed that. Thanks. A big area of the game that is often overlooked.

The club where Eurovision isn't a dirty word. A waltz through the leopard skin lined world of Tom Jones, Bert Kampfert and Burt Bacharach. Step out to the sound of the happy hammond and swing to the seductive sounds of the samba.

DJ's, raffles, cocktails and wide collars. Please dress smart. Gentlemen might like to wear a suit.

Same price. Same music. Same rubbish prizes.

Sometime in the fifties, there was a school in St Helens where Rugby League was taught/coached by a nun!

www.geofflee.net for news of my novels, One Winter, One Spring, One Summer, One Autumn and Two Seasons. All are written against a strong Rugby League background, set in South Lancashire and inspired by the old saying about work: "They could write a book about this place. It would be a best seller".

Yes nice article. I've never actually seen women play rugby before. Good luck England ladies for the World Cup!

Keep an eye out for the 2013 fixtures, very different to the mens game, in the matches I've seen but well worth a watch.
