Lois Forsell

Leeds Rhinos captain Lois Forsell was a driving force behind the success of the team in their debut season in Women’s Super League. She successfully led the side to victory in the Challenge Cup, a game in which she scored the winning try and was named Player of the Match. The England international has also been a crucial part of the Rhinos’ League campaign, helping them to secure the League Leaders’ Shield after topping the final table. A knee injury ended her season prematurely with the Rhinos just missing out on an outstanding treble, yet Forsell was still named joint player of the year. Lois’s day job is as a development officer for the Leeds Rhinos Foundation and her outstanding contribution to the women’s game was recognised recently when she was named the RFL’s first women’s player ambassador.
