Women's Rugby World Cup 2014
With all the attention of the sporting world on the Tour de France, Wimbledon, the World Cup and the Commonwealth Games, the Women's Rugby World Cup has somewhat slipped under the radar. It is covered on Sky and the dates are as follows. It's a bit confusing because the advertising blurb lists 3 of the games as BST which leaves you to suppose the other two might be Central European Time, probably a printing error as it makes no sense otherwise. Better check the times of the sky listings to be sure.
01.08.14 England v Samoa 1700 BST
05.08.14 England v Spain 1445 ?
09.08.14 England v Canada 1445 ?
13.08.14 Semi Finals 1700 & 1945 BST
17.08.14 Final 1745 BST

Mark Fernie, who occasionally claims that he once played for Billingham (tour in-joke) took his new friends on tour to Leeds from where they played Billingham (Teeside) and then Cleckheaton not far from Leeds. The tour was a masterpiece of organisation, attention to detail and commitment from Mark for which all the tourists are most grateful. Since WGOTSOT, details are sketchy but grateful thanks are due to the outstanding friendship and hospitality of both our host clubs, lovely people all of them. Some photos of the game appeared on the Cleckheaton website and a few photos.
A small selection of nearly 500 photos that we took on the tour are displayed here
You don't want to miss the 2015 tour, take our word on that!
