An Introduction to Women’s Rugby Jogging Bottoms Emily Valentine
The Women’s Rugby Jogging Bottoms Emily Valentine. These are stylish Navy Jogging Bottoms that features subtle Emily Valentine branding in the form of detailed embroidery.
Following research by John Birch, he uncovered the hidden history of ladies rugby. The earliest ever record of female playing rugby was Irish-born Emily Valentine. She played rugby for the school team back in 1887.
Further, the transition to a structured game and regular season for Women’s Rugby has taken a long time. Now the game is strong. And the inaugural unofficial Women’s Rugby World Cup held in 1991. And Wales hosted it. The tournament was created and largely organised by four women. The women who were with the Richmond Women’s Rugby Club. They were Sue Dorrington, Alice Cooper, Deborah Griffin and Mary Forsyth.
A total of twelve countries were divided into four groups of three. The USA defeated New Zealand in the semi-finals. Then against the odds, they won the championship with a 19–6 victory over England. In the Plate competition, Canada defeated Spain 18 points to 4.
The tournament made a financial loss. But, anonymous businessmen pledged at the post-tournament celebratory dinner to make up a portion of the deficit. English Rugby made up the remainder of the debt.
Women’s Rugby World Cup 1991
This was due to the men’s 1991 Rugby World Cup staged in Europe that year. Also, the women’s tournament experienced disappointing attendance revenues. And the failure to attract television contracts or any major sponsorship.
Also, the Soviet Union team being unable to pay its transport and hotel bills. As the teams did not get permission to leave the country with hard currency. The party had hoped to make money from selling goods such as Russian dolls, vodka or trinkets. HM Customs and Excise stopped this. And in the end, local Cardiff businesses paid their costs.
