Scrum Queens vent fury over IRFU hypocrisy

The IRFU's occupation of the moral high ground post-French farce was rather undermined by the shambolic attempts to transport the Ireland women's team to their Six Nations game on the same weekend.

Worse, their public defence of their support for the women's game was, quite admirably, exposed as the risible nonsense it was on the excellent Scrum Queens website by Ali Donnelly.

It was also curious to note the timing of the latest leak about a potential hosting of the 2023 Rugby World Cup. This from a Union that has paid no earthly attention to becoming involved with Sevens rugby -- where there would be the perfect opportunity to demonstrate their ability to host a global event on an annual basis!
