England Women’s Rugby Team Clinches Six Nations Title, Breaks Attendance Record at Twickenham
England’s women’s rugby team has won their fifth consecutive Six Nations title and achieved a grand slam, defeating France 38-33 at Twickenham Stadium. A record-breaking crowd of 58,498 fans attended the match, surpassing the previous record of 42,579 set during last year’s World Cup final between New Zealand and England at Eden Park. This impressive attendance highlights the growing popularity of women’s rugby and its increasing appeal to spectators.
The victory marked the 24th consecutive win for England in the competition and a fitting farewell for coach Simon Middleton, who is stepping down after leading the team since 2015. Reflecting on his time with the team, Middleton expressed pride in the players and gratitude for the opportunities the sport has provided him.
The record-breaking attendance and the thrilling competition underscore the significant progress women’s rugby has made in recent years. With continued growth and support, the sport is well-positioned to attract even larger audiences and greater investment in the future.
