visibility of women’s
rugby in 2021
Since the Buildcorp Super W commenced in 2018 there has been a 58% increase in female club rugby XVs registrations. This is one of the most significant outcomes yet from our investment in equal opportunity for women’s rugby.
Despite a disrupted 2020 season, the Buildcorp Super W and Buildcorp Wallaroos players have ensured they are prepared in 2021 to step-up to new opportunities to lead, perform and inspire as they are seen by broader audiences.
This year our sponsorship of rugby is celebrating the power of preparation. Like rugby, much of our work in construction is also unseen. Preparation is the common ground between all high performing teams. It’s thanks to the ‘behind the scenes’ work that the final outcome is a gutsy and polished performance our communities can be proud of.

Visibility in women’s sport creates household names, elevates inclusivity, and demonstrates to others what’s possible. With the 2022 Rugby World Cup on the horizon, and Tests against Samoa and New Zealand in 2021, there is plenty of opportunities to catch their powerful performances in person, live or on demand on Stan Sport.
Trails are blazed to create a new path for the next generation and the ongoing growth in women’s and girl’s rugby at every level is something every player past and present should be proud of.

All performance outcomes are tied to preparation. In construction, our solutions are developed well before we get to site, as part of our cycle of continual improvement. This ensures out teams can hit the ground running and handover defect-free.
In rugby preparation spans fitness, skills, team work and leadership. Once the team take to the field performance looks like effortless moves, seamless plays and executing the previously impossible.

Leadership is one of the strongest transferrable skills from sport to business and community. Players experience new leadership opportunities all along their rugby pathway.
For Buildcorp, leadership looks like being one the first to build long term partnerships through grassroots sport sponsorship, and then further focussing that investment to provide equal opportunity. We couldn’t be prouder that the flow-on effect of our investment in the Buildcorp Wallaroos is the attraction of more likeminded sponsors such as Santos and Cadbury.
