The Richmond Roses suited up for the first time this season on Saturday 30th March 2019 to compete in an Otahuhu Leopards hosted one day rugby league tournament held at Bert Henham Park in Otahuhu.
Six new Roses players pulled on the Richmond jersey for the first time and they really did the Team and Club proud. The team settled into the games quickly, got stuck in and took their chances which was awesome to see. An overall solid team effort all-round the park. The Richmond Roses played three games for three wins, winning the Open grade.
Richmond were the only club with a girls team in every grade which is a massive effort so recognition & thanks to those of you who have worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make this happen throughout the off-season. From the Under 12s to Under 18s the talent, encouragement and motivation on display was amazing. Going by the calibre of players coming through the Richmond Rosebuds teams the Richmond Roses future is looking bright.
The team are continuing to build nicely for the 2019 season ahead which starts this Saturday 6th April against a traditionally strong Papakura Sisters side. So come on out and support with a 1.30pm kick off at Prince Edwards Park, Papakura. Finally, the Roses are looking forward to being more part of the Richmond Club life with the opportunity to play more Saturday games this 2019 season. The team look forward to meeting more members this year so see you at our games and club functions.
