The Free State Woman’s Rugby team won the SARU Provincial B-League the last three years and was promoted to the A-division for 2017. One of the prerequisites of the promotion is that Woman’s Rugby has to have a formal club structure in the Free State. Therefore a club league has to be started which will firstly kick-off with Sevens Rugby followed by 15’s code later the year.
