So, I can’t verify this because I can’t read German. Much less speak it, other than to say Gesundheit.
But according to one of our regular readers in Germany, who goes by the name of Mutantin, the German Rugby Union’s in a cash crunch. Consequently, they will be disbanding the women’s 15s national team to save money.
Mutantin’s posted the full german article here. If any other readers can translate german and verify this, I would appreciate it.
I’ll keep looking for more info on this. But if this is true, hey German Rugby Union … you suck.
Unrelated … Mutantin, what is up with that photo on your site? Those women’s rugby players look more like Playboy Bunnies than athletes. Please tell me German women’s players don’t play in daisydukes.
