Trans women face potential women’s rugby ban over safety concerns

Not definite, but being considered.

Crucially the draft proposals, which have been seen by the Guardian, accept that anyone who has gone through male puberty retains a significant physical advantage after their transition. It also recognises that the advantage is so great – and the potential consequences for the safety of participants in tackles, scrums and mauls concerning enough – it should mean that welfare concerns should be prioritised.

It’s late now and can’t see it being discussed on Twitter. But I imagine it’s not going to go down to well in the morning.

There's a thread on this already (and a few others started at the same time) smile

Good. It's a full body contact sport where people get hurt.
It's not bloody dressage is it?

Although the cynical part of me thinks the guardian are printing it before it is officially announced to drum up an outcry to get it changed.
