The third Pacific Four Series will take place in 2023. It is a women’s rugby union event and one of the main ways to qualify for the top two tiers of WXV. The hosts for 2023 have been confirmed as Spain, Australia, and Canada.
Over the course of three months, the series will air. On April 1 in Madrid, a match between Canada and the United States will kick off the first round. Later in June, Australia will host New Zealand.
All four teams will compete for the title of 2023 champion over two weekends in Canada, where the series will come to a finish.
The 2023 Laurie O’Reilly Cup will be the 14th edition of the rugby union competition. Australia will host the Black Ferns in the first of two O’Reilly Cup matches, which also doubles as a Pacific Four Series test. The second O’Reilly Cup match is set to take place in New Zealand in September.
