Feb 2015 - Village Spartans Women's Team

26 February 2015 by Pure Radio

The England women’s rugby team won the Women’s Rugby World Cup in 2014. This year, one men’s team is taking the opportunity to create a new women’s side.

The Village Spartans are a rugby team for gay and bisexual men. They were formed in 1998, and they regularly train at their grounds in Sale.

Now the Spartans are planning to set up a team for women. They’ll have a taster session at the end of next week, where women can give rugby a try – regardless of whether they’ve played before.

Under the Rainbow has been speaking to Spartans player and their PR Spokesperson, Gareth Longley.
