Geva Roars into Rhinos
The worst-kept secret is confirmed – Geva is back a Rhinos next season.
Leeds Rhinos Netball has signed England Netball superstar Geva Mentor CBE for the 2024 Netball Super League season.
The goalkeeper, who has twice been named the World’s Best Netballer, will return to the UK after 16 seasons playing in the ANZ Championship and Suncorp Super Netball.
Mentor made her Vitality Roses debut in 2000 against New Zealand, aged just 16, and has never looked back, going on to represent her country in six Commonwealth Games and five World Cups. She is on the verge of her sixth appearance in a World Cup as she gets set to play in the tournament for her country this month in South Africa.
Speaking about joining the Rhinos, Mentor said: “I am super delighted to announce that I will be coming back to play in Super League.
“It has been many years since I have played in England at club level, having spent the majority of my career playing netball in Australia in the ANZ Championship and Suncorp Super Netball. I am excited that I will now be moving up north, and this southern lass will be playing for Leeds Rhinos. There are a few things that have drawn me to the club, not only to play under the coaching of Liana Leota but also to help grow the sport in Yorkshire.”
“I can’t wait to be able to connect back to the community, meet the team and get settled into my new club and play in Super League.”
