The Sydney Roosters have today announced that international representatives Olivia Kernick, Amber Hall and Mya Hill-Moana have signed extensions.
Kernick has penned a two-year extension which will take her through to the end of the 2025 season while Hall and Hill-Moana have extended for a further year (2024).
Renowned for her tenacity on the field, 22-year-old Kernick has been a linchpin for the Roosters since joining the team for the delayed 2021 NRLW competition contested in 2022.
She played every minute of every match in the Club’s Premiership run and was named Dally M Second Rower of the Year in 2022. The Indigenous and Māori All Star made her NSW Blues debut in 2022 and made her Australian Jillaroos debut at the Women’s Rugby League World Cup. Most recently, she represented the Jillaroos at the Pacific Championships which were contested last October.
Widely regarded as one of the toughest forwards in the game, Hall, who has been a regular member of the Kiwi Ferns since 2013, joined the Roosters in 2023 after four seasons with the Brisbane Broncos. Her season was cut short by a Lisfranc injury sustained in the opening round of the season.
A Premiership-winner, Māori All Star and New Zealand Fern at just 21 years of age, Mya Hill-Moana is one of the best young forwards in the Club’s system. She joined the Club for the delayed 2021 competition and is a key contributor in the middle of the field. Most recently, she represented New Zealand at the Pacific Championships
“Olivia and Mya have been a part of our squad for a few years now, and in terms of dedication and commitment to the team, they’re right up there, so it’s great to have them locked in for the coming years,” said Roosters NRLW Head Coach, John Strange.
“Amber is a high-quality player and she has been doing well in her recovery. She was sorely missed in our 2023 campaign so it will be great to have her experience back in the squad next season,” he added.
