The Women's team was established in 1995, and has a long and rich tradition and has been proud to produce numerous Australian Wallaroos and Australian 7s players, as well as New South Wales 7s and XVs representatives.
The Women’s XV team competes in the Sydney Women’s Rugby Union Competition for the Jack Scott Cup as well as participating in numerous 7s tournaments throughout spring and summer including the Shute Shield 7s tournament which started in 2018.
In 2018 Jack Scott Cup, the Students picked up both Major and Minor Premierships after they went through the regular season undefeated (winnning with a bonus point in every game!) before getting their revenge on last years champions the Warringah Ratettes winning 38-17 to be crowned 2018 Jack Scott Cup Champions.
