Take a look at Rachael Burford's instagram account - blood pouring from a wound that needed 10 stitches (and she went off, got stitched up and came back on)Now, watch Leicester v Sevilla and enjoy Jamie Vardy recoiling as if he has been hit by a sack of potatos when in fact he received the merest tap on the forehead.Which of Burford or Vardy represent the best values in sport I wonder !
I have really enjoyed watching the Women's Six Nations. It's much better than women's football. Hopefully the World Cup will get good coverage.
What a wonderful achievement by the England team.For the bigots: Each of the women in this successful, skilful team has got there _despite_ the general prevailing view that 'nobody is interested'. They are the best in Europe. They've won the World Cup. They play at their level whether you care to watch or not. Do you object to the headlines because the internet is somehow "full" ?
I'm not a lover of any sport of any kind but what I can't understand is why women's sport, despite they tend to play well and win, we never see any matches unless it's tennis. Time to give the 'girls' more air time
ah ok tyvm :P
@198. 3 points for a grand slam. To ensure that a grand slam winning team will always finish top even with 0 Bonus points.
Fantastic! Well deserved! Living in France I only got the chance to watch England ladies v France and you were superb in the 2nd half.The U20s have also been superb!Let's hope the men can make it a treble Slam! Must be a first?
well done ladies keep up the good work
First off well done, great set of results.... Second, can someone explain how they got 27 points? 5x4 points for wins, 4 x 1 BP for more than 4 tries... 24 points.....
Well done LADIES!!! MEDIA - Why is it that the men always get the major headlines on all platforms????We are supposed to be equal - REALLY!!! Look at the facts and take action.
I see the wendyball mysoginists are out in force with their usual,"why are the BBC forcing this down our throats" rubbish.There are around 30 articles on the sport homepage, 2 of those are about women in sport. If you're not interested, don't click on it or is that a little too complicated for your Neanderthal minds.Congratulations ladies on a great achievement.
@191 The short answer is yes it was! The longer answer involves social mores of many religions and cultures, the relative 'youth' of the womens game and the cutback in school sport. Other than that you're right; it was an elitist, discriminatory team. Bye!
Well played England, hopefully the men can match what you did and get the slam. I think there should be more respect for Women's rugby but it didn't help when the BBC congratulated Rochelle Clark on breaking Jason Leonard's cap record. For god's sake there are 2 different sports and disrespecting Leonard just gave ammo to the the anti Women brigade
Brilliant performance by England's women and an entertaining game. To the people posting idiotic negative comments here - what's wrong with you? It's a different game to the men's but no less entertaining and no less interesting to watch. You're not sports fans, you're just sexists.
If you don't understand rugby then why comment on this story. A great game, hugely competitive, well done ladies
Was the team representative of our inclusive multicultural society, with women from all backgrounds and religions?Thought not.Why not, any thoughts BBC?
