A little later than planned, here is the news that you have been waiting for - your chance to satisfy twenty women at a single stroke. It's all to do with Launceston Rugby Club's Ladies team who are auctioning themselves on ebay in a bid to find a sponsor for the coming season.

It's a chance of pleasing more than 20 women at the same time without risking divorce or arrest?

The women - who range in age from 15 upwards - are seeking a sponsor for the coming season to enable them to buy new kit and equipment and to help them play more competitive fixtures.

"We're damsels in distress," said Lorna Carter, Player-Coach of the Launceston Ladies and the woman behind the auction idea. "We desperately need a sponsor for the coming season and we thought that this would be a great way to find one. The bidding starts at just £49.99 although we hope to raise a lot more than that."

"The winning bidder will make more than 20 women very happy - and it's usually difficult just to do that with one! In return, we offer eternal gratitude, signed photos and presents from the girls and the chance to use us for advertising. Just about anything goes. We'll also buy you a drink if you make it down for our games."

The ebay auction can be found here and closes at 21.52 on August 19th. Anyone wanting to view the Launceston Ladies in action before the auction closes can see them playing in a pre-season tag tournament at Polson Bridge, Launceston on Saturday 15th from Noon.
