It is an exciting season ahead for our 2021 Richmond Roses Premier Team. A new look team with plenty of young talent coming through our well-established Richmond Rosebud junior grades as well as a dose of experienced Richmond ladies and an injection of new players to our mighty family Club.
Vice- Captains Maraea Ah Kuoi-Atmore and Kaiyah Atai, are both exciting young talents who came through the Richmond junior grades and demonstrate great leadership qualities on and off the field. Both Scanlan and Atai are members of the Kiwi Ferns squad, along with Roses players Shaniece Monschau, Laishon Jones, Lydia Quedley, and Kahurina Cassidy.
2021 Richmond Roses’ staff include Anthony Murray (“Ants” - Head Coach) with Tash Davies, Sam Mamea, John Nanai (Assistant Coaches) and Liz Ah Kuoi (Manager).
“The Girls are developing and progressing well, it will be exciting to see what they are capable of doing on the field. Importantly, the culture is good, and I am sure the Roses ladies will do the jersey, club, families, supporters, and sponsors proud each time they take the field,” says coach Murray.
Ah Kuoi says, “our 2021 Richmond Roses Premier Team has been extremely fortunate to have generous support from businesses who are connected to our players and staff. Our team would like to publicly acknowledge and thank our 2021 Richmond Roses Premier team sponsors: Tony Murray Electrical (Major sponsor), Creative Kitchens, Uhila Building Solutions, Russells Curtains, New World Victoria Park, and Carpet Shop. Your support for our team is very much appreciated and look forward to thanking you personally during the season.”
