Canberra United have continued to add to their season 11 roster with the signing of former South African captain Refiloe Jane and forward Rhoda Mulaudzi.
Jane and Mulaudzi make history by becoming the first South Africans signed to a W-League team.
The duo have been involved in Canberra United's Winter Program, which as acted as a trial with Head Coach Heather Garriock impressed with the ability of the pair in the short time.
“It was hard for them to get here, and then to come into a different environment and play but they have done very well to adapt and really stood out to me,” Garriock said.
“Fifi’s technical ability in midfield is simply outstanding, and in Rhoda, I can see the pace and aggression that I’m looking for up front," she said.
Jane, who captained South Africa at last year’s successful Cosafa Cup campaign, has represented her country at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics.
Meanwhile, Mulaudzi is new around the national set-up but both are looking forward to the opportunity to play in the upcoming season.
“I am very excited and grateful for the opportunity at Canberra United,” Jane said.
“I am looking forward to the season and making the most of this chance,” she said.
“This is a very exciting opportunity for us,” Mulaudzi added.
“It all feels like a dream, but I can see it is reality.”
Mulaudzi and Jane are the fourth and fifth signings for Canberra so far and they join Taren King, Nicola Orgill and Natash Prior.
