Sky Sports to show all England Women’s Six Nations 2017 clashes – Telegraph.co.uk
RFU chief executive Ian Ritchie said: “This commitment from Sky Sports reflects what an exciting time it is for women’s rugby and the ongoing growth of the game.
“This is an excellent opportunity for any fans unable to attend games to get behind the Red Roses as they build towards the Women’s Rugby World Cup in Ireland later this year.”
The Six Nations games add to an exciting line-up of women’s rugby on Sky Sports with live action from all six legs of the HSBC World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series, as well as coverage from the Old Mutual Wealth Series in November.
Gus Williamson, head of rugby for Sky Sports, said: “This is great news for Sky Sports viewers and another example of our strong partnership with the RFU across all levels. This deal will give our viewers more action from the Women’s Six Nations than ever before, which adds to a thrilling year of women’s rugby on Sky Sports.”
