Here come the girls...

Being on the ball as ever I missed the fact that last week marked the one year countdown to the kick-off of the Women’s Rugby World Cup in England.

Hosts England are ranked second after losing narrowly to the reigning world champions New Zealand in the 2006 Final in Canada. The two sides haven't played each other since then but are about to put things right when the Black Ferns arrive here on tour this November, playing 3 Tests against England on November 14th, 17th (England A) and 21st (the final game being played at Twickenham).

Venues, kick-off times and ticket information for the 2010 Women’s Rugby World Cup have yet to be finalised but the RFUW are busy preparing, recruiting hundreds of volunteers to ensure the event runs smoothly and successfully.

The RFUW are looking for everything from medical assistance to spectator services to liaison officers - anyone interested in helping can find out more and register their interest here.

And I'll wager that their won't be a single fake blood capsule in sight...

Next year in my hometown of Minneapolis, we get the Bingham Cup, the largest Gay Centric orgy of the oval ball in the world. Not quite the same as England getting the women's World Cup for women next year, and of course, the IRB men's RWC in 2015, but hey, it'something for a town in the upper midwest of the USA.
