Roxette Mura has joined St Helens Women ahead of the new season.
The 25-year-old links up with the side in time for their first match of the year against York City Knights.
“Roxy is a great signing for us and adds both great experience and leadership skills to the team,” Head Coach Mark Brennan said. “I am really looking forward to working with and developing her further.
“Her dynamic style and handling skills will complement the style of rugby we want to play.
“We intend to work towards a brand that complements the Saints tradition of entertaining rugby league.”
Roxy is originally from New Zealand but played her rugby in Australia.
“Back in Australia I played for a club called South East Queensland before moving over here,” she said. “I’m looking forward to it. I think Saints is a good club run by good people and the players here are awesome.
“Hopefully, I can bring some good defence into the side as well as great communication skills – and also a bit of fun!”
