Sporting Highlights:

Making her Suncorp Super Netball debut in round 4 as a replacement player for Emily Mannix, Rahni Samason set tongues wagging with her flair and shooting prowess for the Vixens.

As a squad member in 2018, Rahni Samason was on track for a meteoric rise before injury tragically struck.

Scoring 524 goals throughout the ANL season and finals series, Samason capped off a remarkable season and was named both Australian Netball League MVP and Victorian Fury MVP, before unfortunately rupturing her anterior cruciate ligament late in that year - an injury which sidelined her for much of 2019.

Her commitment to netball kept her motivated while recovering, and Samason has come back stronger than ever - and has been rewarded with another squad member position after exceptional performances in the Victorian Netball League.
