Ray White backs Super W NSW squad
REAL estate giant Ray White NSW is throwing its support behind the first ever NSW Women’s XV squad to line up in the maiden Super W competition.
In a partnership announced today, International Women’s Day, Ray White NSW confirmed it will extend its long-term support for the Waratahs to the newly created women’s program.
Ray White NSW Chairman Stephen Nell (pictured above with NSW player Josephine Falesita) said the company was confident it’s backed a winner.
“We fully anticipate seeing the New South Wales Women’s team in the grand final planned for late April,” Mr Nell said.
“It’s a really strong squad, balancing experienced Wallaroos and exciting new talent, and they come from a wide geographical reach across New South Wales.
“We are proud to be aligned with these elite athletes, who are also wonderful role models.”
The five-team, five-week Super W competition kicks off this Saturday with a double header that pits traditional rivals New South Wales against Queensland at Suncorp Stadium, followed by a Super Rugby match between the Queensland Reds and South Africa’s Bulls.
