Spain

Spain played their first test in 1989 against France. For a time they competed in the Women’s Six Nations but this was altered so that Italy replaced them and the tournament mirrored the men’s.  Spain competed at the 1991 World Cup but missed out on 1994 due to finance problems. They won the European Championships in 1995. Spain hosted the 2002 World Cup in Barcelona, where they finished 8th. They failed to qualify for the 2010 WC but have made huge progress on the Sevens front and are a leading European side on this front.
