WOMEN'S FIRST DIVISION

The Women's First Division is split into two sections – Group 2 kicks off on Saturday, 12 June, and Group 1 will be starting on Saturday, 26 June. Four teams will battle it out in Group 1 of the First Division – Free State, Griffons, Griquas and SWD – while Group 2 features five teams – the Leopards, Limpopo Blue Bulls, Mastercard Golden Lions, Valke and Pumas. These teams will go head-to-head over a single round with the Lions defending the title they won in 2019. The top team in each group will advance to the final, which will be played as the curtain raiser to the Premier Division final.

Reaction

Twickenham experience will benefit Bok Women

The score against the Barbarians on Saturday reflected some realities of where the Springbok Women squad are on their road to next year's Rugby World Cup and although it didn’t make for pretty reading, head coach Stanley Raubenheimer would not want it any other way.

Match report

Experienced Baabaas overpower Bok Women in London

The Springbok Women had little to show at the end of a highly entertaining match with the Barbarians Women at Twickenham in London on Saturday, with the 60-5 scoreline a very sober reflection of the difference in experience, class and execution in match played at a high intensity and pace.

Preview

Ntoyanto: Baabaas rugby for props too

The festival of rugby as celebrated by the Barbarians and their annual opponents does not mean that the forward packs are left behind for flashy backs to score the tries and grab the limelight.

Team announcement

Bok Women want to continue developing against Baabaas

The strong try-line surge shown by the Springbok Women over the last two weeks of their November Series 2021 tour could continue against the Barbarians Women on Saturday at Twickenham, but for that to happen, the South Africans will have to stay true to their objectives and execution.

News

Springbok Women to embrace Barbarians attacking mindset

Much has been said and documented about the intent of any Barbarians team and their willingness to get the ball over the try line of their opponents. Come Saturday and Twickenham, not much would have changed in that regard, but in an historic first, the Baabaas would be trying to breach the defence of the Springbok Women.
