17 STARS OF 2017 | Sammy Bremner
To kick off 2017, we take a look at some of the up-and-coming male and female stars who will hope to represent NSW this year and in the future. Today we look at the most talented fullback in women's Rugby League: Sammy Bremner.
Like a number of her NSW and Australian Jillaroos teammates, Sammy Bremner leads an exciting new generation of women’s Rugby League.
Since picking up a Steeden at just 18 years of age, the now 25-year-old has achieved almost everything she could have hoped in the time since; she won a World Cup in 2013, a drought-breaking Women’s Interstate Challenge and a Sydney Metropolitan Women’s Rugby League premiership in 2016. A classy fullback, Bremner knows how to find the tryline and is a valuable addition to any team she plays in.
Bremner didn’t score in NSW’s 8-4 win over Queensland in July, but her individual performance was simply outstanding. A line-break, 12 tackle-breaks and a game-high 212 metres came from her 18 runs, before she was taken high and forced from the field with just four minutes remaining in the game. While Kezie Apps took Player of the Match honours, Bremner was also close to the best on ground and has proven that she can be a force for years to come.
