Deux matchs en direct, et un documentaire exclusif. Le rugby féminin a toute sa place sur RugbyPass TV, qui lui fait encore la part belle ce week-end.


Dimanche, vous pourrez regarder gratuitement les demi-finales du championnat d’Angleterre féminin. Les quatre meilleures équipes de la saison se retrouvent dans le nord de Londres pour se disputer une place en finale.

Saracens – Bristol Bears, dimanche 9 juin à 15h (heure française) A SUIVRE EN DIRECT ICI

La première demie mettra aux prises les Saracens aux Bristol Bears, au StoneX Stadium. Les Ourses partiront légèrement favorites, elles qui sont venues gagner dans l’antre des Saracens en décembre dernier (32-10), et sont également sorties vainqueurs du dernier duel entre les deux équipes, en mars dernier (35-10).

Gloucester-Hartpury – Exeter Chiefs, dimanche 9 juin à 17h30 (heure française) A SUIVRE EN DIRECT ICI

L’autre demi-finale verra s’affronter Gloucester-Hartpury et Exeter. La première nommée est championne sortante, et est décidée à aller chercher le doublé pour valider une saison à une seule défaite, lors de l’avant-dernière journée (33-31 contre les Saracens). Les coéquipières de la N.8 des Red Roses Alex Matthews ont les faveurs des pronostics face au club qui a terminé 4e de la saison régulière, à 19 points de son adversaire de dimanche.

“Abbie Ward : Bump in the Road”, A VOIR ICI


L’internationale anglaise Abbie Ward sera sur le pré ce week-end, puisque son club de Bristol Bears joue la demi-finale du championnat face aux Saracens. La 2e ou 3e place est revenue sur les terrains 17 semaines seulement après la naissance de sa fille Hallie.

Avec “Bump in the Road”, vous pourrez suivre son parcours tout au long de sa grossesse, le début de sa vie de mère et son retour sur les terrains dans ce documentaire inédit.

Dave, le mari d’Abbie Ward (et ancien talonneur des Harlequins), est également l’entraîneur en chef des Bears. Il apparaît dans le documentaire avec le triple point de vue unique : celui du partenaire, du futur papa et de l’entraîneur.

« Je veux être une joueuse de classe mondiale, je veux être une mère de classe mondiale », assène notamment Abbie Ward dans le documentaire. « Le défi est de savoir si l’on peut être les deux à la fois. »


Réponse – en partie – dans “Bump in the Road”.

Is Ireland versus South Africa a battle for the title of ‘world champions’?

Very good article, Nic, and I find agreement with what you write virtually 100%. I think this two mach series has increasingly become one which will be very difficult for Ireland to win. After the first game of the last 6N, I would have been very full of confidence taking on the Boks in SA. France beaten by a big margin in France, it looked as if Ireland had emerged in fine form from the World Cup, despite the very narrow loss to the AB’s. But after that game, a slide began, ending with the defeat to England. Ireland were very fortunate to win this years 6N ! And as you so fully expose, this has not been a good season for Leinster, or indeed, in my view, for any Irish province. The Leinster loos to the Bulls, and then Munster letting a glorious chance slip to the Glasgow Warriors down at Thomond. Man, that one will really hurt. And both Connacht and Ulster have at times looked very poor this seaso, bith heavily beaten on occassion. The loss of both Gibson Park and Keenan are huge blows, especially Gibson Park. And there is really only one clear class 10 in the touring party, Jack Crowley, and he is still a very young player learning his trade. If he goes down, heaven help Ireland. And in my view, Ireland do not have a good scrummaging front row, SA do, and in great depth too. But despite all this doom and gloom, I always believe my team can win. Not that they will win, just can ! Ireland will still field what is the best and most talented team overall that I have seen in my lifetime. But the coaching group will really have to step up, no awful decisions like the one made against the AB’s in the QF….keeping the totally spent and poorly performing(on the day) Sexton on for the full 80mins, leaving Crowley on the sidelines. Ireland should never have lost that game !

Is Ireland versus South Africa a battle for the title of ‘world champions’?

Ireland have all the tools required to hurt SA. They develop quick ball, hold onto the ball for long periods, stretch the game when its on, have powerful mobile forwards, a good kicking game and they can hold their own in the scrum. They also can force turnovers regularly and in general do well at the breakdown. When Munster, the Ospreys and Glasgow all won games in SA this year against the Bulls and Stormers they did just that and won. It is also the reason why Ireland won the game at the world cup last year. The problem for Ireland is that SA have all the tools required to hurt them as well and hurt them a great deal more than England did in the Six Nations. They are physical and powerful at the set piece, they rush up and counter the Irish attacking system and they can really attack the breakdown and slow your ball down. Their counterattacking threat is also a big weapon and they score many tries from turnover turning defence into offence in a second. Toulouse and the Bulls nailed Leinster in this way and Glasgow did the same thing to Munster. So the series will be really interesting because both sides are so good at countering each other. Interested to see what kind of surprises Tony Brown springs and how the SA game develops. Feel like SA have more potential to surprise Ireland but then a new coaching set up as well as the fact that Japanese and foreign based players tend to take about 5 to 6 weeks to get up to speed might work in Irelands favour. SA have shipped at least one game in 4 of the last 5 June/July test windows going back to 2018 for this exact reason.
