Women’s Rugby World Cup for 2017 – something must be done

Soon, I will be writing a new opinion piece with emphasis on Latin America which in my opinion makes grim reading in terms of Women’s Rugby world wide, The Olympics should have been an impetus to expand the sport even further but the attached picture of who has qualified for the Women’s Rugby World Cup for 2017 will show otherwise.

The qualified teams in green, the qualifying teams in orange. No one has been eliminated so far, According to my source, Kazakhstan and South Africa renounced but no one has still been eliminated on the field. Totally, just 19 or 20 nations are involved in the 2017 World Cup. When will Sudamérica Rugby expand their women’s program to include XV Rugby? and what is World Rugby doing for the rest of the world. Rugby is not just about 7’s.
