The NZRFU Board today approved a substanial development programme for
women's rugby in New Zealand and will seek an annual three nation
competition for the Black Ferns.

Following the Black Fern's victory at the Rugby World Cup, a programme has
been developed to further encourage and develop women players, coaches and
administrators from junior level through to international competition.

Funds were approved to develop a coaching resource similar to the successful
"Small Blacks to All Blacks" programme to introduce women's rugby at
secondary school level.
