Leeds Rhinos reveal three more new signings for 2024 season

Leeds Rhinos have unveiled two new faces in their 2024 Netball Super League squad.

Australian defender and former Collingwood Magpie, Zoe Davies will join up again with Geva Mentor who was announced last month, along with Wales international and former Cardiff Dragons’ midcourter Celyn Emanuel.

The Yorkshire side also confirmed that Amelia Hall will return in 2024 after a year out from playing.

Zoe Davies

The 26-year-old, who can play at Goal Defence and Wing Defence, will test herself in the Netball Super League for the first time.

The Australian started her netball career aged 15 after previously playing hockey. She won a scholarship with City West Falcons, and after some experience away from the club at youth level returned to play in the Championship with the Falcons where she won three Premierships and then earned a spot as a training partner with Collingwood.

She will combine her netball with her remote studies at Swinburne University for a degree in teaching.

Commenting on her contract with the Rhinos Davies said: “I am so excited for the opportunity with the Rhinos. I have heard great things and it will be fantastic to get to work with Geva again too.

“I’ve watched some of the Netball Super League back home and the Roses too so it will be good to experience a new competition and style of play. I am normally recorded as a speedy defender and I definitely bring a lot of enthusiasm and I am big on hard work and the family culture. I love a team that plays for the team and not individually so for me it’s bringing in that culture of everyone wanting to be there for each other and working as hard as we can. I can’t wait to get over there and to begin my journey with the Rhinos.”

Celyn Emanuel

The Bridgend-born player, who can cover Centre and Wing Attack, is the seventh player confirmed for the Rhinos squad for 2024. Emanuel has been part of the Wales age group squads since she was 14, starting out with the U17s before gaining caps for Wales’ senior side. She then joined the Cardiff Dragons, where she has been part of their squad for the last two seasons, making her debut in 2022.

Alongside her playing duties, Emanuel will also work with Leeds Rhinos Foundation in a new partnership with Huddersfield University where she will be the Netball Head Coach and will work with local schools and colleges in the Kirklees area.

“I am super excited to be heading up to Yorkshire. Obviously, it’s a huge fan base and I can’t wait to join up with the club and get going. I am grateful for the opportunity and to be around some amazing coaches and athletes. There will be lots I can learn from the players at the Rhinos and I will be aiming to make the most of this new challenge.”

Amelia Hall

Leeds Rhinos 2022 Players’ Player of the Season is back after a year away from the NSL.

The mid-courter, who is a former Manchester Thunder Training Partner, made her Netball Super League debut with the Rhinos in their first season back in 2021 and made 12 appearances that season. In her second campaign with Leeds her performances earned her a regular spot in the squad, with 12 starts and eight appearances off the bench.

“I am so excited to be returning to the Rhinos. I took a year away from the game to travel Australia and New Zealand but I was keen to reunite with the Rhinos as I loved my first two years at the club. I am looking forward to meeting my new team mates and it’s going to be great to work and learn from Liana Leota. It will be great to be competing again in the Netball Super League and I am ready for the challenge ahead.”
