  Women's Rugby Union Thursday 27 November 2003  
Just behind football, it's the fastest growing sport among women in Britain and it's come a long way since jokes about hookers. For the first time England's women will play at Twickenham - so what is the appeal of rugby?

Clare Jenkins speaks with Kathryn Essex - the first women to be appointed a Women and Girls Rugby Union Development Officer at regional level - and they look at how the game has grown and developed for women.
