Christian Carnovale has been named captain of the Premier C Team of the Year, and Bianca Lenarcic captain of the Women’s Division 3 Team – among eight Rovers players across the two teams.
The Teams of the Year are based on feedback and analysis from coaches, VAFA Media and umpires.
In the Premier C Team of the Year, Rovers captain Christian Carnovale and Nathan Smith were both named in the team, with Carny leading the strong team of 22.
In the Women’s Division 3 Team of the Year, the Rovers had six representatives following an outstanding season in which they qualified for the Grand Final before the season was cut short by Covid, including coach Corey Randall.
Rovers Women’s captain Bianca Lenarcic was chosen to lead the Rovers-dominated team, with Mandy Naylor, Stephanie Peacock (who topped the competition goal kicking), Maegan Miller and Bree Kavanagh also named.
Both Christian Carnovale and Bianca Lenarcic also won their respective team best & fairest awards – as announced at the recent Rovers Awards Night held online.
Attention now turns to 2022 and pre-season training gets underway next week for both the men’s and women’s teams, before concluding with Christmas BBQ and drinks on December 8 at Boss James Reserve.
