Congratulations to our Richmond Rovers rugby league club representatives who will feature in the following competitions:
The Richmond Roses would like to start off by acknowledging our amazing Sponsors who took care of everything off the field which allowed the ladies to concentrate on playing
NAMING RIGHTS MAJOR SPONSOR - Tony Murray Electrical Inspections
Tony jumped onboard as a Richmond Roses sponsor in the 2019 season. This season Tony wanted to establish this relationship further & signed on for 2 further years as the Naming Rights Sponsor. The Roses are honoured to have you on the front of their jerseys every time they run out. Tony also does some amazing things with the Club & also out in the Community. Very honoured to have you onboard. CLICK HERE For all electrical inspections
MAJOR SPONSOR - Savi Hafoka from Stone Solutions.
When the idea was floated to Savi about coming onboard to sponsor the Richmond Roses he was more than willing to not only give back to the game but more importantly the Women's rugby league. Stone Solutions has also signed on for 2 further years as the Roses other major sponsor.
Both of these fine men mentioned are also proud Richmond Old Boys. The Richmond Club & the Richmond Roses can not thank you enough for your support and contribution to the team and sport this season. We look forward to continuing this partnership.
2020 saw the Tony Murray Electrical Inspections Richmond Roses finish the season in 3rd place (behind Manurewa & Ponsonby) before the season was called off. This season saw 10 players from last years Grand Final team return for another run this season. Although 6 of those players were limited to only 2-3 games max each due to injuries.
The Club also saw the rewards of the Richmond Rosebuds Age group system starting to pay off as we had 4 young ladies from the under 18 team progress in to the Richmond Roses. 2 of these young ladies being Maraea Ah Kuoi-Atmore & Rowena Koonwaiyou debuted for the Roses last season).
The Roses had 13 players make their Roses debuts this season of which 10 made their debuts in the first game of the season which also happened to be a Grand Final reply against Papakura. With a good young squad one of the goals this season was to develop these players and look to build towards the future whilst at the same time look to establish combinations on the field knowing that we may lose a few players at the business end of the season due to NRLW -as the covid-19 situation meant the seasons would overlap.
The Roses were the only team to beat first place Manurewa this season so we definitely had the squad to match it with the best this season. CLICK HERE to view the Sky Sport coverage of this game.
Special mention to Eddie & Quentin at Leaton Performance & Rehabilitation for all the work you did getting these ladies sorted during the week and attended to on game days. CLICK HERE for more information.
Finally, a massive thank you to all the Club volunteers for all the work you do behind the scenes to keep the club up and running. Your time, dedication and effort does not go unnoticed.
The Coaching Staff of Tammi Wilson Uluinayau, Bee Ceeono-Harden & Teasha Marra for giving up your valued time and time away from your own families (not to mention the countless Zoom Meetings throughout the season) as you all tried to navigate your way through the season.
The Richmond Roses crew would like to give a massive shout out and thanks to the following amazing people:
In closing, the Richmond club, Richmond Roses (past & present), family and friends would like to congratulate the 16 players from the Richmond Roses who are continuing on with some code this 2020 year and turning out to play in the NZRL Premiership, NZRL Championship or NRLW competitions. We wish you all the best for your campaigns.

The awesome Steven Glucina, of LJ Hooker, has just paid a further $1725 sponsorship to support Richmond’s Premier side.
Part of Steven’s sponsorship arrangement is that Richmond receives $1725 for every successful property referral from a Richmond member.
Isaac Ah Kuoi-Atmore’s company, Landdividers Ltd, referred a client’s Torbay property to Steven, and the property was sold at auction the other day.
On the heels of a similar payment to Richmond following the earlier successful sale of the Strickland Family’s property, this is a great example of supporting those who support Richmond, in a win/win for both of us.
Please contact Steven (021 888 455) in confidence if you know of a property owner looking to sell or you just have any questions about property and/rental properties.
With Auckland remaining in level 2.5 till at least Monday, 14th September, Richmond Rovers have been informed that the remainder of the 2020 rugby league season will now conclude.
As we can understand safety is paramount for all, and we support this in its entirety. However, before we sign off for the season, we cannot go past those who contributed throughout.
Richmond Rovers would like to take this opportunity to thank all its amazing players, team management, members, supporters, volunteer’s, and sponsors for their unwavering support over what was an uncertain, interrupted, and frustrating 2020 season.
Congratulations to the following teams who placed in the top quarter of their sections and were preparing to take the field for finals footy. A massive effort from you all for getting this far.
Congratulations also to these teams on their valiant efforts this year. Had we not seen the season end abruptly, we have no doubt you would have been in the mix for finals footy.
You have set a great foundation for our club and put us in good stead for a much anticipated 2021 season.
Thank you for representing Richmond Rovers with pride.
As much as we would have loved to have seen “one more try” at the dog pound, we hope you and your families will stay vigilant and be safe. No doubt we will see many of our bulldogs strapping up once again for their summer codes.
We are truly, the Greatest club of All!
With regards and best wishes, thank you.
Richmond Board and Junior Committee
