A look at the game of women's rugby in Ireland in 1973.

The RTÉ series 'Tangents' went to watch a rugby game between the women's teams from Trinity College Dublin and University College Dublin. 

Some of the players spoke to reporter Kevin O'Connor about why they play and love the game of rugby and if they would like to see an Irish international women's rugby team.

Why not? Yeah I think maybe a Triple Crown or something like that. That is probably a far fetched idea at the moment but maybe within a few years."

  This report for 'Tangents' was first broadcast 21 March 1973.
