Principal partner and front of jersey sponsor Daikin and major partners Ray White, People & Culture Strategies and the University of NSW will all have their logos displayed on the team’s playing apparel. NSW Rugby and NSW Waratahs CEO Andrew Hore said the partnership further highlights the commitment to support the NSW team in a competition that is set to become the flagship tournament for women’s rugby in Australia. “This competition will redefine the game in New South Wales and nationally. Rugby has a proud history in our State and while our participants are increasing, it is our responsibility to continue to develop meaningful pathways for all our women and girls,” Hore said. ‘We are extremely proud of this team that will represent our State at a significant time for the sport.” Daikin’s National Marketing Manager Dan Tosh said: “We are proud to extend our partnership to the NSW Women’s rugby team and it is fantastic to be associated with the inaugural Super W competition. The game in New South Wales continues to grow and we want to be part of this exciting chapter for the sport.” Joydeep Hor, Founder and Managing Principal of People and Culture Strategies said: “We have a long association with rugby in New South Wales and to have our logo proudly displayed on the jerseys of the NSW Women’s Team underlines our commitment to the sport. We simply love rugby and what it represents and it’s fitting that we are alongside the team during an historic time for the game in Australia.” Stephen Nell, Chairman of real estate giants Ray White said: “We are proud to be aligned with these elite athletes, who are also wonderful role models. It is a really strong squad balancing experienced Wallaroos and exciting new talent, and these players all come from a wide geographical reach across New South Wales.” For the University of NSW, the association extends beyond sport. The institution’s Head of Sport and Community Mark Wright said: “UNSW sees the partnership with NSW Women’s Super W on two strategic levels. It firstly provides a healthy extension to the existing partnership with the NSW Waratahs that has a clear and defined focus on the enhancement of excellence and strong community engagement. The alignment with the NSW Women’s team shows our commitment and support for increasing female student sports participation and engagement. We want to inspire each and every female identifying person on campus to get active, providing the opportunities for everyone at UNSW from beginners’ courses to high performance opportunities.” The NSW Women’s team kick off the 2018 season with an opening round match against interstate rivals the Queensland Women’s XV today.
