Not really an issue for a women’s side right now

Yeah obviously but I presume they are looking at the potential for this in the mens game given the greater commercial returns

No idea, but i can't wait to find out.

Wales women played 2 games in 2019. They lost the first 30-6 against GB Teachers. The scoreline didn`t reflect the result.

They won the second 24-20 against England Community Lions. Both games are up on YouTube.

Have to mention this. - All the Welsh women come from RU, so they can struggle initially with the PTB. i.e. they can be too slow and deliberate. Their opposition are used to the PTB and can therefore play faster. This is now accentuated by English players being allowed to use the illegal rollball. Should the Welsh players copy that, or play the ball legally? The RFL should answer that question.

In the Teachers` game, one of the Welsh players was penalised for literally rolling the ball between her legs. Yet during the rest of the game some English players were allowed to roll the ball and deliberately hop over it, which is no less illegal.

What future is there for international RL fixtures if opposing teams are playing to different rules in a fundamental part of the game?

But the context was in a discussion about the development of the women's game in Wales.

Are the 6 teams mentioned at the end all confirmed? Or is it just speculation at this stage?

London have confirmed their participation. I assume the others have as well as it'd be odd for a formal press release to just include some 'nice ideas for teams'.

I didn't realise it was a formal press release, I thought it was just a TRL article.

Not sure - but the bit at the end reads like the sort of thing you stick on a press release.
