We sit with 2019 signing Robyn Moodaly, who has brought in with her some US Collegiate Flair and experience and has been a crucial part of the team’s progress this year, adding value in the middle of the park for JVW since the start of the season. Moodaly who was part of the JVW FC first team before heading off to spend a few years in the USA, has settled in well and is looking to make a name for herself on South African soil as well as the International stage.
