Hayley Raso is back in a star-studded Brisbane Roar lineup for the upcoming W-League season.
Raso returns to Brisbane after a sensational campaign with Portland Thorns in the NWSL, where she became a hero and one of the most prolific attackers on their route to finals.
“I’m really excited to be back. I obviously love playing for Brisbane Roar, it’s my home state, all my family and friends are here and there’s nowhere I’d rather be,” Raso told Roar’s official website.
Raso links up with Katrina Gorry, Clare Polkinghorne, Elise Kellond-Knight and Tameka Yallop, to name a few, in a Roar side seeking to stabilise after the departure of Mel Andreatta and arrival of new coach, Jake Goodship.
“I’m really looking forward to it," she said.
"Last year was a rough year, but it’s an exciting thought to be able to train well this pre-season, play the season out and hopefully we can do something special this year.”
