“Netball is a huge part of our ‘One Team, Team Rhinos’ ethos in which we are proud to offer opportunities at all levels from elite to community across all our Rhinos sporting entities. We would like to thank all our partners for their support from our inception and those who have allowed us to go to the next level.”
