The postponed Six Nations & the future direction of women's rugby Off The Bench

    • Sports

For the first Off The Bench of 2021, we have a rugby special about postponement of women's Six Nations.

Our guest is Alison Donnelly, editor of 'Scrum Queens' and renowned expert on the women's game who juggles that voluntary role with working full-time for Sport England.

She argues that separating women's Six Nations from running parallel to the men's could actually be a good thing and the best way to grow it further.

Included also is a discussion on how the postponement impacts Ireland's 2021 World Cup hopes, the recent #icare campaign that followed Six Nations postponement and we ask why the women's Six Nations still has no title sponsor.

Cliona and Alison also discussed the fear that women's sport may be worst hit by the negative effects of COVID-19.
