Women's Rugby

The Australian Rugby Foundation has been a committed and significant contributor to Women's Rugby.

The ARF supports the ARU’s vision to ensure:

  • More girls are picking up and running with a ball
  • A flourishing women’s Sevens scene – established and clear pathway
  • More women on the touchline and in the Boardroom
  • Elite opportunities for Women players via Sevens and XVs high performance programs including the AON Uni Sevens Series and an annual international test program for our Wallaroos

We were behind our Australian Women's 7s Olympic Team every step of the way as they secured their 2016 Olympic Gold Medal in Rio. The funds the Foundation raised through its generous donors and targeted fundraising, supported the team with critical services, helping the team recover faster and trainer harder on the way to victory.

The Australian Rugby Foundation also wants to ensure, that our Australian Women’s XV team - the Buildcorp Wallaroos, has the opportunity to succeed on the world stage, through its support of these talented female athletes.
