The Wallaroos have announced a 40-player Players of National Interest (PONI) squad following the Super W season.

Five teams are represented in the squad, with winger and vice-captain Jemima McCalman included from the President's XV.
General Manager, Women’s Rugby Jilly Collins said “Many congratulations to all those selected. The Wallaroos Selection Panel had many tough decisions to make, with so many players performing well in Super W 2021.”
“Rugby Australia looks forward to announcing new Test match dates for the Wallaroos shortly.
"We are working hard with all our partners to confirm the revised schedule, following the postponement of the PacificAus Sports Wallaroos Samoa Test series, due to current COVID-19 restrictions."
