The British and Irish Lions have confirmed that they are in talks with home unions for the possible creation of women's team.
According to a report in BBC, meetings with English, Scottish and Welsh Unions have already been conducted with another scheduled against Irish Rugby Football Union scheduled next week.
"We can confirm that we've begun initial discussions with the home unions," said a Lions spokesman.
"They have been positive, informative and constructive."
The report further added that apart from traditional tours of South Africa, New Zealand and Australia, USA and Canada are also considered as options.
The women's game has been in steady growth and the success of the 2017 Women's World Cup also saw the advent of Barbarians Women's team.
Earlier, Barbarians Women lined up against USA Eagles in April this year and followed it with another clash against England counterparts at Twickenham Stadium on 2nd June.
