RFU offers 10 clubs places in 2017 competition

Wednesday, 1 March 2017 :  Six of the eight clubs in the 2016-17 Women’s Premiership, including leaders Bristol Ladies, have been given places.

The Rugby Football Union will make a multi-million pound investment in the competition’s first three years.

Women’s Super Rugby is aimed at improving playing standards and increasing participation in the sport.

The number of females playing rugby union grew significantly in the aftermath of England’s World Cup victory in 2014 and the RFU want to double the number of current participants to 50,000.

RFU director of professional rugby Nigel Melville said: “This is another significant development for women’s rugby in this country.

“Women’s Super Rugby will drive standards in the game, both domestically and at an elite level, and continue to encourage more women and girls to play the sport.
