The online home of Women's Rugby


Officially formed in 1987, the Women's National Team (known as the Eagles) has been an international powerhouse since its inception. The Eagles won the first official Women's Rugby World Cup in 1991, and finished second in the two following World Cups (1994, 1998). The team finished sixth in the 2002 Women's Rugby World Cup. The Eagles have set the standard for international competition, leading an ensuing wave of women's rugby growth and game development worldwide.
