Ungentlemanly Conduct? 'When we first started playing, we had great crowds coming to watch a pile of girls rolling in the mud.'
Rugby has been a religion in Wales for over 100 years, and until some women in the village of Magor formed a ladies' side six years ago, 'Men Only' was firmly engraved on the 'chapel' door.
