Season 2022 provided plenty of memorable moments, and through the off-season, we'll be counting down the top 10 highlights of the year that was.

At the end of season Jack Gibson Medal awards night, Sydney Roosters Captain James Tedesco etched his name further into Club history following yet another stellar season.

In his second year as Captain, Tedesco was a constant threat and inspirational leader for the Tricolours across the park, featuring in 24 matches, scoring 13 tries (including his career 100th) while providing a further 12 four-pointers and breaking a competition-high 169 tackles.

Along with his 212 average running metres, the dynamic fullback made his 200th NRL appearance and guided his side from 10th position to the semi-finals following an eight-match winning streak.

After claiming the Red Rooster Members' Player of the Year award earlier in the night, Tedesco was brought up to the stage once again to claim the Jack Gibson Medal as Roosters Player of the Year.

In doing so, he became the first player in Club history to be awarded the coveted prize for a fifth time, eclipsing legend Craig Fitzgibbon with his fifth consecutive medal in tow.

It capped off yet another stellar season in the Red, White and Blue for Tedesco, which saw him claim a host of other awards including the Brad Fittler Medal and the RLPA Players' Champion.
