This is the first book to introduce key themes in the study of women’s rugby from multi-disciplinary perspectives, including history, sociology, gender studies, sport development and sport science. Featuring contributions from leading researchers and former international players from across Canada, England, France, New Zealand and the USA, the book opens with a global history of women’s rugby, locating the game in the wider context of the development of women’s sport and exploring important social issues such as race, gender and violence. The book then looks at training and performance analysis at pitch level, helping the reader get a sense of the game from the ground up, before focusing on women’s rugby through the eyes of others (such as rugby coaches), women’s experiences of rugby’s culture and promotional culture. This is fascinating reading for anybody with an interest in women’s sport, rugby, sport and social issues, sport development, or sport history.

Chapters: African Women's Sevens, Amsterdam Women's Sevens, Asian Women's Sevens, Caribbean Women's Sevens Championship, European Women's Sevens Championship, Hong Kong Women's Sevens, IRB Women's Sevens Challenge Cup, List of women's rugby sevens competitions, Pacific Women's Sevens Championship, Rome Sevens, South American Women's Sevens Championship, USA Women's Sevens Tournament, Women's Sevens World Cup. Excerpt: Rugby Union Sevens - a short form of the sport of rugby union - was first played in 1883, with the first (men's) internationals taking place in 1973. As women's rugby union developed in the 1960s and 1970s the format became very popular as it allowed games, and entire leagues, to be developed in countries even when player numbers were small, and it remains the main form the women's game is played in most parts of the world. However, although the first Women's international rugby union 15-a-side test match took place in 1982, it was not until 1997 before the first Women's International Rugby Union Sevens tournaments were played, when the Hong Kong Sevens included a women's tournament for the first time. Over the next decade the number of tournaments grew, with almost every region developing regular championship. This reached its zenith with the first Women's Sevens World Cup in 2009, shortly followed by the announcement that women's rugby sevens will be included in the Olympics from 2016. The European Women's Sevens Championship is an annual tournament organised by FIRA - Association of European Rugby, the governing body of European rugby union. There are a number of pool games that lead up to the finals tournament. The first European Women's Sevens Championship was held in 2003 in Lunel, France and was won by Spain.

Book Summary:

This book explores the expansion of rugby from its imperial and amateur upper-class white male core into other contexts throughout the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The development of rugby in the racially divided communities of the setter empire and how this was viewed are explored initially. Then the editors turn to four case studies of rugby's expansion beyond the bounds of the British Empire (France, Italy, Japan and the USA). The role of women in rugby is examined and the subsequent development of women's rugby as one of the fastest growing sports for women in Europe, North America and Australasia in the 1980s and 1990s. The final section analyses the impact of commercialisation, professionalisation and media on rugby and the impact on the historic rugby culture linked to an ethos of amateurism.

Book Summary:

A celebration of Ireland’s greatest rugby year Relive, game by game, the key moments in Ireland’s historic 2015 Six Nations campaign, which culminated in a nerve-shredding final weekend when both the women’s and men’s titles were still up for grabs. Through interviews with players like Sean O’Brien, Niamh Briggs, Nora Stapleton and Robbie Henshaw – as well as members of the backroom staff – journalists Kate Rowan and Peter O’Reilly provide a unique glimpse into the mindset of the two camps. Kate looks at recent advances in the Irish women’s game, while Peter outlines the transformation in the men’s fortunes under Joe Schmidt, ‘the best coach in the world’. They highlight the contrasts between the amateur women’s and professional men’s set-ups and the lifestyles of the players on each team. Six Nations, Two Stories offers unrivalled depth of coverage of a breakthrough Six Nations season: the first time that Ireland won both senior tournaments in one year, renewing optimism in the future of Irish rugby.

Book Summary:

Women's rugby relationships are generally analysed from the point of view of men's rugby, otherwise they are overlooked. The overall aim of this study is to make sense of women's rugby experiences in terms of feminine friendship, relationships they forge and develop through on-field play and the informal culture surrounding the game. This research was conducted and written from the perspective of an active participant as both observer and "research subject." Within the framework of sexual difference theory according to Irigaray and Italian feminism, it is a dialogue between the main concepts which ground this theory and qualitative data gathered from personal experiences and in-depth interviews. Sexual difference theory makes sense of women's rugby relationships as it allows one to approach women's experiences in rugby from the premise that women are not required to imitate or reverse men's rugby meanings in order to make sense of their experiences. In short, one of the central aims of this research is to challenge the belief that men's rugby experiences are neutral and abstract and, therefore, can be unproblematically applied to women's rugby.

Book Summary:

Rugby, a full contact sport played recreationally by both men and women, exposes participants to a high risk of injury. This cross-sectional study explored the patterns of injury among female rugby players in the U.S. and investigated several potential risk factors. A convenience sample of 364 females playing rugby in the U.S. was surveyed. Players had a mean age of 25.7 years. The majority of players (83.0%) had sustained an injury within their most recent 3 months of play. The general patterns of injury, reported as prevalence rates, indicated the most commonly injured body site was the head (28.3%) followed by knee (27.5%), fingers (27.5%), shoulder (26.4%), neck (21.4%), and ankle (21.2%). The types of injuries reported included strains/sprains (33.2%), concussions (11.5%), tears (7.7%), fractures (6.9%), and dislocations (5.5%). Patterns of injury were also investigated in terms of a strict study definition of injury. When only considering injuries sustained within the most recent three months which caused players to seek professional medical attention or prevented participation in rugby activities or normal work/school activities for e"even days, 159 of the 364 players (43.7%) were classified as injured. Among these 159 individuals, the sites most often injured, reported as prevalence rates, were shoulder (24.8%) followed by knee (22.9%), ankle (15.3%), and head (13.4%). Types of injuries sustained included strains/sprains (47.1%), tears (17.4%), fractures (16.1%), concussions (12.3%), and dislocations (11.0%). Over a third of the injured players reported sustaining injuries to more than one site (37.6%) and injuries of more than one type (33.6%) at their most recent injury event. The tackle was the phase of play most commonly associated with injury. Additionally, 12.7% of the injured players believed they had been injured as the result of foul play. Multivariate analyses found that while unpenalized foul play was significantly associated with injury, the use of protective equipment, warming up prior to playing, alcohol use, and a willingness to take risks were not associated with injury. The results of a comprehensive examination of injury in U.S. female rugby players had not been previously reported. Thus, this study fills a unique position.

Book Summary:

The modern game of rugby football has become gladiatorial, whereby muscular athletic players are involved in a form of collision chess with sophisticated defences smothering the offensive skills that were at one time a more dominant feature of the game. The contributors to this book consider the physical, mental and nutritional demands of the game in its present form and how best to acquire these attributes in the most effective and efficient manner. The inevitable injuries that are associated with collision are considered in terms of prevention and the most effective forms of treatment. New concepts to improve exercise capacity, game preparation and recovery are discussed in conjunction with the modern coaching theories of the game. The possible changes to the rules are discussed by two outstanding International referees, and the future vision for World Rugby is outlined by the President of World Rugby. The Dynamics of Modern Rugby is both a unique and contemporary addition to the rugby literature and, as such, is essential reading for any student, researcher, coach, sports scientist, physiotherapist, nutritionist or clinician with an interest in rugby.

Book Summary:

From the myth of William Webb Ellis to the glory of the 2003 World Cup win, this book explores the social history of rugby union in England. Ever since Tom Brown’s Schooldays the sport has seen itself as the guardian of traditional English middle-class values. In this fascinating new history, leading rugby historian Tony Collins demonstrates how these values have shaped the English game, from the public schools to mass spectator sport, from strict amateurism to global professionalism. Based on unprecedented access to the official archives of the Rugby Football Union, and drawing on an impressive array of sources from club minutes to personal memoirs and contemporary literature, the book explores in vivid detail the key events, personalities and players that have made English rugby. From an era of rapid growth at the end of the nineteenth century, through the terrible losses suffered during the First World War and the subsequent ‘rush to rugby’ in the public and grammar schools, and into the periods of disorientation and commercialisation in the 1960s through to the present day, the story of English rugby union is also the story of the making of modern England. Like all the very best writers on sport, Tony Collins uses sport as a prism through which to better understand both culture and society. A ground-breaking work of both social history and sport history, A Social History of English Rugby Union tells a fascinating story of sporting endeavour, masculine identity, imperial ideology, social consciousness and the nature of Englishness.
