Coach quote on Performance:

“Kenya is new to Aussie Rules, in fact hadn’t played until just over a year ago. She has taken to the game brilliantly winning our Div 1 Best & Fairest last year. An off season improving her skills, along with her fitness as a surf boat rower, sees Kenya as a starting midfielder in our Prems side. She has an intense appetite for the footy and enjoys her team mates success as much as her own. She is a great asset to our program and I look forward to her improving even more over this season” – Manly Warringah Wolves, Women’s Premier Division Coach – Peter Robertson
