It’s not rugby, but this clip from women’s gridiron features an impressive run that the likes of Ma’a Nonu would be proud of. The behaviour afterwards is questionable, but in terms of a spectacle, the Legends Football League seems to deliver.
It’s hard to imagine that a scantily-clad-female rugby form of this would ever be acceptable, seeing as it’s 2014 and all, but the Legends Football League is a hit in the USA. It used to be called the Lingerie Football League, for obvious reasons, before the name change.
In fact there is something similar that takes place in Europe each year, so we’ll do our best to report on that soon (someone’s got to do it).
From the same country that brought us Hooters, the LFL is 7 on 7 women’s American Gridiron, where the players wear as little as possible. Until recently, they only wore garters, bras and panties.
It’s been touted as the fastest growing sports league in the USA, and has record TV ratings.
In this clip Markie ‘Lil Train’ Henderson of the Las Vegas Sin (really) bulldozes Chicago Bliss’ Dominique Collins, scores the touchdown then lets everyone know about it.
The coaches take it quite seriously too apparently, as can be seen in this clip.
