Transgender women allowed to play women’s rugby in France

The French rugby federation (FFR) has voted unanimously in favor of allowing transgender women to play women’s rugby as of next season. The decision goes against advice given by World Rugby, who last year said it did not recommend that transgender women play women’s contact rugby “on safety grounds at the international level of the game.” However, the governing body’s advice was not binding and allowed national federations to implement their own grassroots policy. “Rugby is an inclusive sport of sharing, without distinction of sex, gender, origin, or religion,” Serge Simon, Vice President of FFR, said in a statement on Monday.
