Rugby follows FINA's move, bans transgender players from women's internationals

With several international sports organisations reviewing trans athletes' participation, the International Rugby League has banned transgender players from women's international competitions.

Rugby became the second sport to ban transgender women after the world swimming body FINA voted to restrict the participation of transgender athletes in elite women's competitions.

After the newly imposed ban by the International Rugby League (IRL), transgender players will be not allowed to compete at the women's World Cup in England later this year.
