The Exiles Ladies were officially launched on March 18, 2000 with their first dedicated training session. For three years, the ladies team grew with full squads regularly taking the field and even winning the Danish championship. Unfortunately, the ladies team folded in 2003. After a five year hiatus, the ladies team has re-established a strong side with members from around the world including Australia, Denmark, England, Finland, France, Germany, Holland, Spain, Sweden, and the United States.
In 2010, only one year after the team had properly re-established itself, the Exiles Ladies won the Danish National Championship and placed 2nd in the DM 7's.

For those unfamiliar with womens rugby, it is recognised as a sport that women can both excel in and enjoy. The fact that this dynamic game is for all women regardless of shape, size, or speed is one of the reasons why rugby is the fastest growing women’s collegiate sports in the United States and Canada. The Exiles Ladies team aims to develop players by teaching the fundamentals of rugby while improving fitness and coordination. For more advanced players, there are opportunities to play in matches both in and outside Denmark.
