The Singapore women's national rugby union team are a national sporting side of Singapore, representing them at rugby union. The side first played in 2006.

History[edit]

The history of women's rugby in Singapore has been a short one. The game was introduced by the Singapore Rugby Union through the men's clubs in 1996. The first Singapore women's national 7s team was formed in 1997 and they represented the republic at the Hong Kong International Women's 7s and the inaugural Asian Women's 7s in the same year.

Since then, the Singapore women's national 7s team has grown from strength to strength. One of their significant wins includes becoming plate winners in the Hong Kong International Women's 7s in 2003. Within Asia, the team achieved it highest ranking in 2004, when it became 2nd in Asia behind Kazakhstan in the Asian Rugby Football Union's Asian Women's Championship 7s held in Almaty. The team retained their top three placing the next year when the Asian Women's Championship 7s was hosted in Singapore.

As an indication of the growth of the game in the region, women's rugby was included for the first time in the South East Asian Games 2007 in Korat, Thailand and the Singapore Women's 7s team took the silver medal ahead of Cambodia and Laos.

With the help of the Singapore Rugby Union, the game in the 15s format was introduced to the clubs in 2005 and the first Singapore women's 15s league was established in 2006.

The first Singapore national women's 15s team was formed that year and took part in A.R.F.U.'s Women's Championship 15s in Kunming. Although losing their first four test matches over 2006 and 2007, the team was not to be denied their first win for long. The Singapore Women's National 15s team registered their first victory at the 2008 Asian Women's Championship 15s in Taraz, Kazakhstan when they beat Kyrgyzstan 38–0. The Singapore Women narrowly lost a place in the finals to Japan.

In 2009 Singapore hosted the Asian World Cup qualification tournament.
