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.

Rugby legend Rebecca Smyth chats about rugby, community and family!

“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”.
