World Rugby plans to focus England’s energy at Euro 2022 by hosting a safe and successful Women’s World Cup later this year.

Sarah Hunter’s Red Roses travel to New Zealand in October and are confident of matching the Lionesses’ success in football as they top the world rankings and are undefeated in 23 Tests.

World Rugby has emphasized that the tournament will promote players’ brain health through leading-edge protocols and programmes.

“The success of the Lionesses and the Euro as a whole has captivated a nation and challenged us all to harness the tremendous opportunity and power of women in sport, which is what we do,” World Rugby Chief Executive Alan Gilpin told the PA news agency .

“We are the next big cab in this transformative year for women’s sport with a landmark Rugby World Cup in New Zealand that will be big in many ways.

“In order for the world’s best women to fulfill their potential on the world’s greatest stages, we must walk the talk and deliver a world-class experience at our major events.

“We have to back words with deeds. And that is exactly what we are doing in New Zealand.”

Player welfare has dominated the conversation in the elite men’s game amid claims that playing the sport has caused brain damage.

World Rugby, Rugby Football Union and Welsh Rugby Union are being sued for allegedly failing to “protect players from permanent injury”.

Applicants include former Wales captain Ryan Jones and England’s 2003 World Cup-winning hooker Steve Thompson, with many ex-players diagnosed with early-onset dementia and other irreversible neurological impairments.

All teams at the Women’s World Cup will be offered the opportunity to participate in a smart mouthguard research program that will help investigate the nature of headbutts and accelerations in the female game.

A 12-day return-to-play process for a confirmed concussion for players with a history of such injuries will be in place.

Video technology will also help identify potential concussions, with World Rugby offering mental wellbeing support to help with any anxiety-related issues.

Gilpin said: “We are proud to showcase the latest advances in supporting and mentoring female athletes on and off the field.

“This is hugely important to us, not just because we all work hard to advance welfare in rugby, but because we recognize that we need to take a different approach for our women athletes and not just replicate what we do for the men do.

“The Rugby World Cup 2021 will offer the most advanced and comprehensive standards of player welfare at any rugby event.

“We will carry the momentum from New Zealand 2021 into the start of our annual WXV competition and into an expanded Rugby World Cup in England in 2025 and beyond. Welfare will be at the heart of our planning.”
