Women's Premier League

Overview

It is the main competition for scottish women's clubs.
Unfortunately not all the results and even not all the winners are known.
It is probable that the league was formed in 1993 when the scottish clubs left the british WRFU to form the SWRU (Scottish Women's Rugby Union), but nothing is known about the first editions.
