Wellington has one of the largest and most competitive women's Rugby grades in New Zealand. Not only do we have a good club competition, but our representative teams reguarly make the finals of their competitions; including the Farah Palmer Womens National Provincial Championship and the annual National Sevens tournament held in Rotorua.
2019 recognised 30 years of women’s rugby in Wellington which officially started in 1989.
The women’s game is receiving more exposure, with a particular mention of the tremendous efforts from the Wellington Pride side which won the Farah Palmer Championship in 2018. The performance of the side saw five of the Wellington Pride players contracted to the Black Ferns squad. The Wellington Pride also finished in the top four of the Farah Palmer Cup Premiership in 2019.
There are 3 trophies up for grabs in the women's competition:
Rebecca Liua'ana Trophy (Formerly known as the Fleurs Trophy) - Women's First Round
Tia Paasi Memorial Trophy (Formerly known as the Victoria Tavern Trophy) - Women's Second Round, Division One
Izzy Ford Trophy - Women's Second Round, Division Two
