The NSW Waratahs and Queensland Reds are set to add another chapter to their rivalry as they face off in the Super W Final.
The two teams will headline a triple-header on Finals day at C.ex Coffs International Stadium, Coffs Harbour.
The Melbourne Rebels will play the Brumbies at 9:00am AEST as the first of three matches on the day. This will be followed at 11:00 am AEST with President’s XV taking on a Buildcorp Super W Select invitational team made up of non-playing squad members from other teams and a selection of local talent from Regional NSW.
Finally, the Reds and Waratahs will take the field at 1:30 pm to determine the Super W champions, with the Waratahs looking to continue their incredible unbeaten streak.
“I am thoroughly looking forward to the matches on Saturday, after what has been a fantastic ten days of Women’s Rugby in Coffs Harbour," General Manager, Women’s Rugby Jilly Collins said.
“I am pleased that we have been able to secure the President’s XV a fixture on the finals day too, despite the Western Force having to travel back to Western Australia early due to COVID-19 restrictions.
“We are in for a cracking day of Rugby and I would encourage everyone to tune into Stan, and for locals to head down and watch the action live.
“Finally, I would like to extend my thanks again to the Regional NSW government for their support of the tournament through the Regional Events Acceleration Fund”.
