Brisbane Lions forward Jesse Wardlaw has taken out the league goal-kicking award, lifting her season tally to 19 goals after slotting two majors in her side's Friday night defeat of Collingwood.

The 22-year old finished three goals clear of second placed Melbourne forward Kate Hore, who managed 16 goals.

Wardlaws fifth season in the AFLW proved to be a breakout year as she increased her goal per game average from 0.8 to 2.1 in the space of one season.

Her efforts throughout the year helped lift Brisbane to a first-place finish on the AFLW ladder, coincidentally ahead of Kate Hore's second-placed Melbourne side.

Selected with pick 61 of the 2018 NAB AFLW Draft, Wardlaw has taken time to establish herself as a superstar of the competition, but a premiership in 2021 helped build her confidence dramatically and she has since solidified her status among the premier key forwards in the league.

Playing nine of the 10 games this season, she now sits at 46 goals for her career and will look to increase that stat come finals time where Brisbane hope to do some damage.

Look for Wardlaw to showcase her forward prowess in Brisbane's week one finals match against fourth placed Richmond at Metricon Stadium.
