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.
