Australia’s best women’s rugby competition is set for take-off as Buildcorp Super W kicks off this Friday 4 March.
To celebrate, Rugby Australia alongside naming rights partner Buildcorp will officially launch the season with a virtual event bringing together the captains and coaches of all Australian-based teams.
For the first time in its history, the competition will feature the Fijiana Drua joining the five existing Australian sides. This season will also see a total of 12 doubleheaders with Harvey Norman Super Rugby Pacific matches throughout the competition.
Rugby Australia Chief Executive Andy Marinos said: “Season five of Buildcorp Super W will reach a new level in 2022, with more teams, more games and more double headers than ever before.
“It’s an exciting year for women’s Rugby and this competition will showcase the best talent across the country.
“Today’s launch is a great opportunity for new and existing fans to connect with our teams and get excited for the season ahead.
“I’d like to thank Buildcorp for their ongoing support of women’s Rugby in this country. It is something they are incredibly passionate about and we appreciate the work they do in this space.
"I’d also like to thank Stan Sport for their commitment to bringing fans closer to women’s Rugby, with all the action available on the Home of Rugby.”
Buildcorp Managing Director Tony Sukkar AM said: “The impact of the fifth Buildcorp Super W season will reach beyond borders and expectations as even more young talent are given the opportunity to experience elite level Rugby.
“This competition continues to be vital to the development of Australian Women’s Rugby and ultimately the success of the Buildcorp Wallaroos ahead of their extensive 2022 Test season. This is also a great opportunity to unearth new talent for our national side and I’m sure Buildcorp Wallaroos head coach Jay Tregonning will be watching closely.
“Buildcorp is proud to see the women’s pipeline continuing to get stronger with significant annual growth in registrations from juniors through to club Rugby.”
