Japan experience ‘unbelievable’ for Waterman https://buff.ly/2VsndgA

12:00 PM – Oct 13, 2019
Danielle Waterman spoke with Talking Rugby Union about visiting Japan with Maggie Alphonsi to see where Liberty Fields got their start. Their trop coincides with the 2019 Men’s Rugby World Cup as well.

“It was unbelievable to get to go to Japan and experience a little bit of Tokyo before the rugby world descended upon it,” Waterman continued. “It is an incredible host nation and to be able to visit Liberty Fields was just, well, quite emotional.”

“We also got to appreciate just what those women were doing because the backdrop was Tokyo and the field was in the middle of nowhere. They made history and I think it was really, really special.”

Newcastle has announced they will be adding a women’s side and will look to join Tyrrells Premier. They join several other established clubs and plant themselves in the middle of a discussion around single side clubs and professionalism.

We’ve been asking clubs to diversify their rosters but now that it’s happening, what can be done to ensure other clubs aren’t left behind?

We released our 2019-2020 standings for USA Rugby Senior Club rugby this week. It’s always a bit of trial and error as the landscape is changing and it’s no different this year. Women’s D1 has revamped back to four competitive regions (it was 8 last year) and playoff format is yet to be determined.

This always causes ripples in D2 and we did see a few teams opt out of D1 this year. D2 remains largely the same with 8 competitive regions and playoffs will remain the same.
