What's everyone gonna do on Saturday morning now...? big hole to fill. I've loved every second, but having waited so long it seemed over in a flash. Loads of new faces down at Waterloo watching & hope that carries on into the season in both adult & M&J.

Well according to the BBC the WRU are looking at organising a Women's Lions tour.

We had good turn outs at my club between 70 and 100. Lots of new faces .
AGM held on Monday with positive vibes, so can't wait for first game a friendly 4 weeks on Friday at Neath a ground I have not been to before.

Referees can pull teams up for not straight at line outs so why not at scrums? I put this query to Nigel Owens .... Never got a reply!
 
Refs seem to judge lineouts in terms of millimetres!
Soon after the scrum engage was changed a few years ago I was watching a Super Rugby game. The first 2 scrum feeds were penalised for not straight (one each side) and I remember the ref saying the next offence would be a full penalty. The ball was feed correctly for the rest of the game.
If we were all judged by the worst thing we'd ever done, none of us would come out very well.

It's a nice idea but will it be commercially viable realistically? Plus it is highly unlikely it would get the same number of fans going.

The WRWC in Dublin is sold out - though I think there may be tickets left for some pool games.
Which shows the Womens game is growing.
So while I doubt it would be as big as the men's Lions, it could be viable and will build.
