  • Short Summary

    Women relaxing in a boat on a river are contrasted with a women's rugby team.

  • Description

    Introductory intertitle reads: "It seems only yesterday that Eve was content to form part of a peaceful background - "

    Scenes of a lazy day on the river. Two women relax on pillows in a boat rowed by a man. They are protected from the sun by a parasol. "Today she leads the speedy sporting life - in the Rugger fields of France." The river scene is contrasted with a women's rugby game in France. It is a rough and tumble game with a scrum and a try featured. "Nothing too strenuous for the one-time delicate Demoiselle."
    More shots of the match. A large crowd watches from a stand. Story ends with nice team shots of both sides.
