Chelsea Baker scores Dally M try award

NRLW: The rising star of Broncos' fullback Chelsea Baker just got a little brighter after she won the NRLW Women's Try of the Year at the Dally M awards on Wednesday night.

It was a combination of skill and speed when Baker showed the St George defenders a clean pair of heels to bust through their defensive line.

She then put on a dummy swerve to the right and a step to the left to dive over the try line in the corner to bring up the first try in the opening minutes of the inaugural season of NRLW.

The try opened the Broncos account for the NRLW season.

The team continued its success, winning more awards and making the grand final to be played 1.35pm, Sunday, at Sydney's ANZ Stadium.

Broncos' hooker Brittany Breayley was third-time lucky winning the Dally M Female Player of the Year award.
