The tough, physical sport of rugby boasts the exact same rules for women, exact same ball, and exact same field size. On July 28th the speed, strength and creativity of women’s rugby will be center stage at the Rugged Rugby Tour Denver. The game that involves scrummages, rucks, mauls, and passing backwards will be played by USA’s top women players in an East vs. West game.
The players will feed from the 10 teams of the Women’s Premier League. The Women’s Premier League (WPL) features the nation’s top women’s rugby talent and is the highest level of senior club 15s competition in the U.S. Joanna Kitlinski, Sara Chobot, and Christiane Pheil are just a few of the USA rugby stars that will be on field.
The exposure at Rugged Rugby Tour is crucial to the growth of the women’s game. Rugby is creating a pathway to inspire a generation of young girls with rugby’s strong values.
“To have the women on the main stage at an event like this allows us to help the standard of the women’s rugby in America.” comments Angelo Tanner President of the Rugged Rugby Tour. “It’s a way to younger girls to get into the game of rugby and aspire to be world class athletes.”
The nearly nonstop action will be played a University of Denver Pioneer field with the kick-off scheduled for 2:30 pm.
With more than 20,000 registered females in USA Rugby, the U.S. has more female rugby players than any other country.
