The Manawatu Women's Squad for the 2021/22 season have worked hard over the previous few weeks to be best prepared for the upcoming season. Despite a few covid related delays, there is a lot of excitement and ability amongst the players.
We are fortunate to have current White Fern, Hannah Rowe, sharing the captaincy with ex-White Fern, Sian Ruck. There are also other players with higher representative honours who are contributing a lot to the team, during pre-season games and training sessions.
The first half of the season is a chance for players to shine and show what they offer, with all games clashing with the Central Hinds First-Class season.
With a few double-headers and an exciting trip down south to play Nelson, there are plenty of reasons for the players to continue to work hard, support each other and hopefully be successful on and off the pitch.
This season is set to be a memorable time, and hopefully a lot of personal milestones being achieved.
