French rugby have made the decision today to allow Transgender woman compete in woman’s rugby a huge decision and great day for equal rights. Rugby has always prided itself in being an all inclusive sport be it tall, small, big, rugby has always been a game for everyone and now it has proved that once again. Right call made by French rugby can you see other Unions follow suit?

The French give so much to the game of rugby, their mens team have always showed the beauty of the game with their hands and free flowing rugby and France have done it again with this major decision.
