The 2017 Buildcorp XVs Championship kicks off tomorrow at Runaway Bay Super Sports Centre up on the Gold Coast.

The Championship, which runs from Friday 12th to Sunday 14th, will see the first match take place between Sydney and South Australia first thing in the morning.

New South Wales have put forward two teams in the competition, with Sydney and NSW Country both eager to stake their claim over teams from across the country.

The side from Sydney will be entering the 2017 edition of the competition as title defenders, which is a title they have held for four years consecutively.

NSW Country, who finished 5th in last year’s rendition of the tournament, have been placed in Pool B alongside the tough opponents ACT and Queensland, as well as Victoria.

The Corellas, coached by Michael Burgess, went down to grand-finalists ACT in the second round of 2016 – not before defeating both Queensland, South Australia and ADF Rugby Union over the course of the weekend.

Pool A will see Sydney tackle the Australian Defence Force, South Australia and Western Australia over the weekend. In last year’s tournament, Sydney downed ADF Rugby Union, Victoria and WA convincingly only to have 5 points scored against them.

The Buildcorp National Women’s XV Championship presents itself as one of the last opportunities the participants will receive to stake their claim on Wallaroos selectors as the 2017 Women’s World Cup in Ireland looms.
