WOMEN'S FIRST DIVISION

The Women's First Division is split into two sections – Group 2 kicks off on Saturday, 12 June, and Group 1 will be starting on Saturday, 26 June. Four teams will battle it out in Group 1 of the First Division – Free State, Griffons, Griquas and SWD – while Group 2 features five teams – the Leopards, Limpopo Blue Bulls, Mastercard Golden Lions, Valke and Pumas. These teams will go head-to-head over a single round with the Lions defending the title they won in 2019. The top team in each group will advance to the final, which will be played as the curtain raiser to the Premier Division final.
