Rumours of a Rugby Union match...

As an interstate resident with past connections to the ACT, I do try to keep an eye on goings on via this site, the Canberra Times online and ABC News online.

I’m a bit puzzled by the complete lack of any mention of a rugby union grand final that was won by Royals Rugby club there this past weekend.

Could it be the fact that it was the Women’s competition that meant it got zero coverage by these sites? I was able to find out about a schoolboy match…

The Americans have the right idea.

Surely roller derby should be allowed. And tennis. They wear short skirts in tennis.
