Jess Sergis is widely revered as the best female Rugby League player in the world and when you take a look at her incredible 2019 campaign, there's little doubt as to why.
She won the coveted Golden Boot Award and Dally M Medal following her blistering season with the St George Illawarra Dragons in the NRLW, and enjoyed a dominant representative campaign that started with the victorious Harvey Norman NSW Women's Origin side.
She left no stone unturned in a dynamic performance on the wing that saw her record one try, one linebreak, two tackle-breaks and 94m, helping NSW claim back-to-back Origin victories with a 14-4 defeat of Queensland.
It was made even more special given Sergis had last played for NSW in 2017, before injury significantly derailed her 2018 campaign and missed out on representative selection for her state and country.
Her prominent rise culminated into a breakout season for Sergis who dominated the Dragons' right-edge in 2019, and she shined in a star-studded line-up that boasted the likes of Maddie Studdon, Tiana Penitani, Botille Vette-Welsh, and captain Kezie Apps.
In her four appearances, she recorded three tries, two line-breaks, and 21 tackle-breaks, helping the Red V to the Grand Final although their efforts were to no avail with a 30-6 loss to Brisbane Broncos.
While the COVID-19 pandemic has thrown the 2020 season in disarray, Sergis has been in blistering form for the Helensburgh Tigers and has shined in her new role of fullback.
There's little doubt that Sergis is primed for further success later this season and will play a crucial role in NSW's attempt to claim three consecutive Women's Origin victories.
