Super W pre-season clashes confirmed

Round 1 of Super Rugby continues to deliver with a Super W double-header confirmed. The Super W team will go head-to-head with fellow rivals, the Melbourne Rebels, in a pre-season make-up match. Last season's RD4 fixture was cancelled due to a COVID-19 outbreak in the opposing team. Gates will open early to all, ensuring your seats are available from the opening whistle. 

Non-traditional rugby state South Australia will venture to the West in an anticipated trial match on Saturday, 11 March, at HBF Park. This is the first time the women's South Australian team will compete against a Super W team, and there is no better stage than the Force's Field. 

Not one, but three double headers!

HBF Park will host the final doubleheader on Saturday 22 April, in combination with our Armed Forces Round. An afternoon of honour, respected with two awaited fixtures with the men taking on the Highlanders and the women facing the Brumbies. 

The Super W team will host a Festival of Rugby stand-alone game at McGillivray Oval on Sunday 16 April. Here various games of rugby will be played in the spirit of unity and celebrating our great game.
