- England 72-4 Brazil
- Record crowd set for women’s rugby league game in UK
Those at the forefront of women’s rugby league in England have made no secret of their desire to capitalise on what the Lionesses achieved this year at the European Championship, and this match was about as good a start as they could have hoped for –both on and off the field.
On a cold, grey Tuesday afternoon in Leeds, the biggest crowd for a women’s rugby league game in the UK watched the hosts start their campaign impressively against Brazil Amazonas, playing only their third game of rugby league.
