Star Signing - Tahlita Buethke

Watch out for Tahlita Buethke, who has traded in her navy socks for red ones, by joining Norwood for 2023.

The 20-year-old star midfielder will be a pleasant presence for the Redlegs, who narrowly missed the major round in 2022.

Buethke averaged 15.5 disposals and four tackles in 2022, suggesting she will be a difference-maker at The Parade.

One to Watch - Rosie Boon

Recruited this time last year to The Parade, Boon is an ex-basketballer eager to develop her craft with the Redlegs.

The 18-year-old is set to be trialled in multiple roles under new coach Brad Snell, who is keen to see how she fares playing in defence and attack, as well as the ruck.
