From Checkpoint, 6:08 pm on 3 March 2021

2021 was touted as being the "golden year" for women's rugby. Back-to-back major international tournaments with the Olympics, to be followed by the first women's Rugby World Cup to be held in the southern hemisphere.

But now World Rugby's recommended postponing the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand until next year.

It's a decision that's not only hit the players hard, as Felicity Reid reports.
