2022 SQUAD:


Shaquanda Greene (GD/GK)
Lucy Howells (GD/GK/WD)

Louise Marsden (GA/WA)
Lefébre Rademan (GA/WA)
Eleanor Roberts (GA/GS)
Georgia Rowe (GS)
Laura Rudland (GA/WA)
Katarina Short (GA/GS)

Though the Dragons have a lot of depth that can roll through the respective circles, the likes of Leighton has shown she can equally play midcourt as she did for Scotland last month. Rademan gained great touch with South Africa at the recent Quad Series, whilst the Dragons appointed their leaders earlier this week with Jones announced as captain.

Though the CeltIc Dragons do not have as many non-Welsh international representatives as other sides, they have brought in a few fresh faces who will hopefully drive the side to a couple more wins. It is anticipated they will still finish low down the ladder, but have some burgeoning young talents who could be ones to watch for the future.
