England Women rewarded

Some great news for England Women's Rugby with the announcement that professional player contracts will be awarded for the 15-a-side game for the first time this year.

A massive 48 player contracts will be awarded by the RFU for the 2016/17 season, a step up from the groundbreaking 20 contracts awarded following England's 2014 World Cup triumph. 

The fact that the contracts will no longer just be limited to Sevens players (as was the case previously) - is also hugely significant and will provide major encouragement for those players who, shall we say, perhaps might not be of the quick and nimble persuasion...
