The action then moves to Coffs Harbour, where the remaining games will be played at C.ex Coffs International Stadium, with the Final slated for July 3.

The teams will be split into two pools of three after the inclusion of the President's XV, designed to give more opportunities to females athletes.

They will be joined by Pool B by the Waratahs and Rebels, with the Brumbies, Reds and newly re-named Western Force making up Pool A.

Rugby Australia’s Chief Executive Officer Andy Marinos said in a statement: “We are really excited to announce Buildcorp Super W 2021 and are delighted to be hosting a festival of rugby style tournament in Coffs Harbour.”

“In full consultation with the teams, we made a decision to alter the format and dates of the competition for this year. This is only for 2021 and the competition will revert to a home and away format from 2022.

“The changes are mainly due to the unique nature of the season, with a need to help prepare our national teams for the Olympic Games and Rugby World Cup 2021. We were also very conscious of the COVID-19 environment and the format deliberately reduces interstate travel.

“With the Olympic Games taking place in July 2021, it was important that the Aon Uni Sevens Series was played earlier in the year, ahead of Buildcorp Super W.

“Whilst the Rugby World Cup has been postponed for twelve months, we are still excited to see our Buildcorp Wallaroos back in action this season playing two Tests against Samoa in July."

“We are proud to support Australia’s premier domestic Women’s tournament as it continues to grow, bringing Australian Rugby fans every match live and on demand on Stan Sport.”
