A Wallaroos are in the midst of a six-day training camp in Canberra ahead of the historic Bledisloe Cup double-header on Saturday against the New Zealand Black Ferns.
For the last few months, the squad has been satellite training in their homes states but came together over the weekend to get preparation into full swing.
The squad has 13 uncapped players along with experienced players, which will each bring a different thing to the team.
"The girls have come in excited and they trained really well in terrible conditions, the good thing about is that they didn't care about the conditions it was about the footy," Wallaroos coach Dwayne Nestor.
"You are sort of waiting for that first stumble but they have come together exceptionally well which is really pleasing and puts us further ahead then what we thought we'd be.
"It's a new experience (for the rookies) but also a learning experience for the older players as well.
"It's a different program, there are different personalities so we've given the younger one's task of bringing the enthusiasm and the older girls it's about passing on the experience," Nestor said.
Not only is a historic moment in that it is the first time since 2008 the Wallaroos and Black Ferns have faced each other in Australia but it will the Wallaroos 50th match and the first time they will receive match payments.
Players will receive $1000 after the most recent collective bargaining agreement signed in December 2017.
"It is a huge step forward in women's rugby," Wallaroos lock Michelle Milward said.
