Banyana Banyana duo joins Australian club

Refiloe Jane

The Australian club announced on Monday that Jane (26) and Mulaudzi (28) will join the side in the capital city for the 11th season of the Westfield W-League. They join a number of other Banyana players who are operating abroad, such as Janine van Wyk, Leandra Smeda, Thembi Kgatlana and Linda Motlhalo.

Having made their names with Banyana Banyana, Refiloe Jane and Rhoda Mulaudzi will be keen to make an impact in international club football with Canberra United.

“I am very excited and grateful for the opportunity at Canberra United. I am looking forward to the season and making the most of this chance,” Jane told the Canberra United website.

Mulaudzi said: “This is a very exciting opportunity for us. It all feels like a dream (getting a contract), but I can see it is reality.” The South African pair actually went for trials in the Canberra United Winter Program, and have now made the cut for the new season.

“In their short time here in Canberra, Fifi and Rhoda have been very impressive,” coach Heather Garriock said. “It was hard for them to get here, and then to come in to a different environment and play, but they have done very well to adapt and really stood out to me.

“Fifi’s technical ability in midfield is simply outstanding, and in Rhoda, I can see the pace and aggression that I’m looking for upfront.

“You look at where the Westfield W-League has been, where it’s come from, and then see where it is now. “Players are been recruited from everywhere, players are being given these opportunities in a strong league, and it is a good sign of where the league is at.”
