Rugby to go gender neutral

It is safe to say that, in the time that I have been messing about with this blog, Women's Rugby has taken huge strides forward.

And the next stage in the evolution of the women's game comes with the announcement by World Rugby that, in future, no mention of gender will be included in the titles of marquee tournaments.

The Women's World Cup in 2021 will therefore be renamed Rugby World Cup 2021.

And to those who might claim that this will inevitably cause confusion with the men's Rugby World Cup, I'd say we're probably all big enough and clever enough to get our heads around it.
