The World Rugby Association gets a clue that maybe, just maybe, we shouldn’t have men competing against women in a sport (especially full contact ones).

“The governing body will hold a forum next week to consult “expert voices” and is seeking elite players’ views.

As a reason for the review, World Rugby cites research suggesting that reducing testosterone does not lower strength and power proportionately.

“World Rugby’s vision is ‘a sport for all, true to its values’,” said World Rugby chairman Sir Bill Beaumont.

“There is growing recognition of the importance of autonomy of gender identity in society and all sports are currently evaluating their policies to ensure that they are fit-for-purpose in the modern sporting and societal landscape.”

If the tide can be turned in Rugby, elsewhere common sense and dedication to scientific material reality can prevail. :)
