The Sydney Roosters are pleased to announce the additions of Sam Bremner and Jada Taylor to the Club’s 2022 NRLW squad.
One of the most decorated players in women’s Rugby League, Bremner will make her return to the NRLW with the Roosters following the birth of her two children.
Bremner: "It's Surreal to Pull On the Red, White and Blue"
The 30-year-old fullback is a two-time World Cup winner with the Jillaroos and has also represented New South Wales and the NRL All Stars.
“Sam is an incredible athlete and has been a leading voice in the women’s game both on and off the field for a number of years now, so we’re really pleased to welcome a player of her calibre and experience to our squad,” said Roosters NRLW Head Coach John Strange.
“I’m really excited to be making my return to the NRLW with the Sydney Roosters,” said Bremner.
“I’ve played with many of the players in the squad, and there’s some exciting new talent at the Roosters as well. I’m feeling fitter and hungrier than ever, and I’m looking forward to playing my role to ensure the Club builds on the success it had in the 2021 season,” she added.

Joining Bremner as new additions to the Roosters 2022 NRLW squad are Jada Taylor, Shannon Rose, Jasmin Strange and Angelina Teakaraanga-Katoa.
The confirmation of Taylor’s signing caps off a memorable week for the 18-year-old fullback who has progressed from the Sydney Roosters Indigenous Academy.
Representing New South Wales (NSW) in last week’s women’s Under 19s State of Origin match, Taylor was named player of the match for her dominant 80-minute performance which included an unforgettable length-of-the-field try.
Taylor was also a member of the Roosters’ undefeated 2022 side which claimed the Tarsha Gale Cup in April before progressing to the NSW Harvey Norman Women’s Premiership with the Central Coast Roosters.
Central Coast products Shannon Rose and Jasmin Strange have also progressed to the Roosters NRLW squad via the Central Coast Roosters.
Taylor: "It's a Special Feeling"
With the ability to play at fullback or wing, Rose was named in the NSW Emerging Country side earlier this year while centre/wing Strange was a NSW Country Representative in 2021.
Teakaraanga-Katoa is a tough and uncompromising lock/front-rower who plays for the North Sydney Bears in the NSW Harvey Norman Women’s Premiership.
