The Great Britain women's national rugby union team were a national sporting side of Great Britain, representing them at rugby union from 1986 to 1990. The team was organised by the Women's Rugby Football Union (which was responsible for women's rugby across the UK from 1983 to 1994) but was gradually replaced by separate teams representing England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales between 1987 and 1990.
