Destiny's brilliant season iced with rookie gong

The best word to describe Destiny Brill's last 12 months is whirlwind.

From being a QRL Women's Premiership grand finalist to making her Origin debut for Queensland, followed by her NRLW debut earlier this year for the Gold Coast which led to her being named not only the Titans' rookie of the year but also the RLPA's youngster of the season... it's fair to say it's been an incredible 365 days for the 18-year-old.

The middle third dynamo was elated to named the club's best first-year player at Wednesday's NRLW Awards - only one vote off winning the top gong - and still can't believe all the accolades she has already achieved in her fledgling career.

"I'm really speechless because there's a lot of good talent out there," Brill said

"Especially rookies from our team that really played out their skin this season."

Reflecting on her season - which may have only seen her score one try, but she busted through 35 tackles and made an incredible 173 at 95 percent efficiency in her six appearances across the season - the Queensland hooker was humbled to be part of the inaugural women's team to represent the Gold Coast.

"My favourite part has been just creating history with the girls," Brill said.

"But I don't think anything can top winning our first Queensland derby against the Broncos at our home ground."

Destiny Brill fires her way through the Eels line

Joining the North Queensland Gold Stars for this season's BMD Premiership, her next focus is playing good footy in the statewide women's competition before hoping to get another Maroons call-up for the clash on June 24.

"It's been a real humbling experience to get named again, but I've still got to work for my position," Brill said.
