Lions eye women’s team

The British and Irish Lions have set up a feasibility group led by former Lions star Ieuan Evans to explore the possibility of setting up a women’s rugby union team. Lions tours bring together the best male players from England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland to face New Zealand, Australia and South Africa every four years but there is no women’s equivalent. Former Wales winger Evans, a veteran of three Lions tours, will chair a 13-strong steering group, including rugby administrators, business leaders, coaches and players. Evans said the women’s game was experiencing “unprecedented growth around the world”. “A women’s Lions team is a big opportunity for the women’s game, and I am looking forward to working with the steering group to assess its viability,” he said in a statement yesterday.
