I was thinking.....Interesting that the Girls are also referred to as “yellows” - perhaps they should be called the “Ewes”??

I remember watching some Oxford women’s rugby (as you do) back in the day. I had no idea who was playing who, so I asked another spectator, a lady, and It seems it was Oxford Polytechnic Ladies playing someone. My fellow spectator also told me the team were know as “The Poly Bags”.

A fun name but I guess you couldn’t get away with it today...sad...but somebody would be offended. ?

Some interesting suggestions. Would the fact, that an ox is usually a neutered bullock, allow the term ‘oxen’ to be used and inclusivity assured?

just asking.
