Birth Place

Goal Keeper


The New Zealander, who is a specialist goal keeper joined the Rhinos in 2021 and made her debut in the opening game of the season against Celtic Dragons.  She earned a regular starting spot at goal keeper in Dan Ryan’s side, missing just four games after picking up an injury in round two, but returned to be at the heart of the defence, making the most intercepts for the team and fifth most in Superleague.

Keenan began her career in the UK with Yorkshire Jets where she helped the team to a fourth place Superleague finish.  She went on to play for Team Northumbria before making the switch, to Loughborough Lightning in 2018, where she played alongside current Rhinos Vicki Oyesola and Emily Hollingworth.

A strong and intelligent circle defender, she will bring a wealth of experience to the Rhinos side from her playing career on both sides of the hemisphere.
