Vagas Ladies to compete in men's rugby league for first time

Women's side to face Guernsey at home on 19 Sept

Big changes are happening in the world of rugby as, for the first time ever, the one women's team on the Island will compete in the men's league.

Vagas Ladies' only chance of games is to travel across to play, however with border restrictions foiling that, the squad had been left with no one to compete against this season.

Thus, the introduction into the Manx Bowl, alongside Castletown, Emerging Nomads, Ramsey B, Vagabonds Hornets, and Western Vikings.

Ladies coach Jack Caine told Rhian Evans more:

The official season begins on 3 October.

Before that, Vagas Ladies will take on Guernsey on Saturday, 19 September at Ballafletcher.

Kick off is at 2:30pm, spectators and foam hands are encouraged.
