Guest contributors on the live reaction include Angela Ruggiero, the four-time Olympian, World Rugby board member and co-founder of the Sports Innovation Lab, Benny Bonsu, the first female sports editor in the UK, and Sue Anstiss MBE, a founding Trustee of the Women's Sport and manging director of Fearless Women Ltd.
