16. ROMANO THEUNISSEN
A committed and driven left back, Romano progressed to an important player, and often starter, during the 2016 season. Already possessing the ability to tackle well and run for 90 minutes when he first joined in 2015, last season saw him greatly improve in regards to decision making and distribution of the ball, resulting in consistently good performances.
Unfortunately, Romano suffered a terrible cruciate injury to his knee toward the end of the 2016 season and will be out for some time. He has, however, reaffirmed his desire to return to the team once fully fit again. Having already undergone surgery successfully, we hope the worst is behind him and that he makes a full recovery. We of course also look forward to seeing him back in the Mighty Shane shirt in the future.
