First off, check out the photo of the Senior Women’s Canadian Rugby Team, taken at the 2014 Women’s Rugby World Cup, and posted to their Twitter page header: https://twitter.com/RugbyCanada. Pretty fucking awesome, right?!
The Senior Women’s team has been competing in France at the 2014 Women’s Rugby World Cup for the past few weeks, and on Wednesday, August 13 they beat France in a grueling semi-final match. Their win puts them into the finals against England, and the last time these two teams met on August 9, they tied 13 – 13. This final match should be monumental!
Rugby Canada has been posting photos, videos, and updates about the tournament, which, if not familiar with the sport, is a great way to get up-to-speed. Canadian media outlets, CBC, Toronto Star, Globe and Mail, have been commenting that the success of the Senior Women’s team at this tournament has garnered some much-needed attention for the sport, especially for women.
The finals of the 2014 Women’s Rugby World Cup will be played on Sunday, August 17. The game will be aired live by TSN2 at 12:30PM ET. For tournament highlights and coverage, check out TSN.
