The action kicks off on March 15 at HBF Park, where the Western Force will take on the Melbourne Rebels. Following this, the NSW Waratahs will host the ACT Brumbies at Allianz Stadium. Meanwhile, the Fijian Drua, formerly known as Fijiana, will embark on their quest for a third consecutive championship as they face the Queensland Reds in a grand-final rematch.

The top four teams will secure spots in the semi-finals, where they will vie for a place in the Grand Final set for the last weekend in April. Teams will undergo an official three-week pre-season, featuring matchups between Australian sides and teams from Oceania and Japan.

Rugby Australia has also unveiled a Super Rugby Women’s U19 competition to bolster women’s rugby. Additionally, the Next Gen Sevens competition will now be part of the Super Rugby Women’s Sevens category, streamlining pathways for women’s participation in the sport.

In anticipation of the 2024 Super W draw, Rugby Australia CEO, Phil Waugh, has expressed excitement about the opportunity to present the finest female rugby talents from both Australia and Fiji to a vast and enthusiastic audience. The event promises to be a celebration of women’s rugby on a grand scale.

With the surge in women’s Sevens and XVs participation at the grassroots level, the future of women’s rugby in Australia looks exceptionally promising. While there was a desire to expand the Super W competition, it became apparent that doing so in 2024 would necessitate diverting funds from other critical areas within the women’s program, including development initiatives, the recruitment of high-performance staff, and player remuneration.

As we pursue a thoughtful and strategic course for bolstering the women’s game, we extend our sincere gratitude to Buildcorp for their steadfast support of women’s rugby and their integral role in this journey. In the near future, we will share more details about Rugby Australia’s second-phase strategic plan for women’s game development, encompassing the 2024 and 2025 seasons, culminating in the upcoming Rugby World Cup in England.
