I am a devoted supporter of the game and watching itis one of my greatest entertainment activities. The game intrigues me with its blend of strength, tactic, discipline, and teamwork. Every score demonstrates the importance of excelling in all these elements even in life beyond the game. The goodness of rugby notwithstanding, the game and communications regarding it has a subtext that it is a masculine sport and not feminine (Harrington p4). Hardly would the mention of rugby bring the image of a woman or women to mind.
Men’s rugby has received immense publicity while women’s has received minimal. The men who feature in advertisements for rugby have protruding biceps and broad chests like weights lifters. In those advertisements, they use force and excessive energy when countering their counterparts. The subtext in these advertisements implies that women lack the physical capacity to play rugby and this is incorrect. In fact, some women are better body-built than some men are. Using physical capacity as a basis for not featuring women in rugby entrenches the traditional patriarchal stereotype that women are weaker than men are (Harrington p4).
