Jessica Gentle has achieved a lot in her short time in the game, after taking up Rugby League just last year.

The outside back was part of the NSW Country team that won the 2022 National Championships, scoring two tries in the final as well as being named Player of the Tournament for the Open’s division.

The 26-year-old then signed with the Knights for the 2022 NRLW season and made her NRLW debut against the Dragons in round five.

Gentle was also named the 2022 NSW Country Women’s Player of the Year at the Brad Fittler Medal last September.

Prior to her Rugby League career, Gentle spent six years in Wyoming in America, playing Soccer and Rugby Union.
