- Squad Number48
- Debut date
A grafter, who steers the ship from the back, Safety Nena was deservedly a Lions’ Positional Leader and again a Defensive Captain this season. A humble player Nena is not the sort to present her achievements above those of her team but she should, underneath that calm exterior, she is a fierce Lion – tough, committed and competitive, she reads the game superbly, and does so reliably for both club and country. Protecting her Pride is a big part of who she is, both on and off the field.
Nena is the Lions’ Defensive Captain and the heart-beat of the ‘dark-side’. A former flanker, her natural resilience, tenacity and ultimate team-first attitude, serve the team perfectly. Nena’s commitment to a team that already means so much to her is unquestioned, whilst her influence is simply, immeasurable; an integral part of the Lions’ success to date.
