The semi-finals of the NRL Telstra Women's Premiership produced two quality matches and impressive individual performances across the competition.

In the final team of the week instalment for the rescheduled 2021 season, a record seven Roosters made the team following their stunning upset result over the Broncos.  

1. Emma Tonegato (Dragons)

Another classy performance from the Dragons fullback with a try, 157 metres and five tackle busts to her name. Will be a huge key for the Red V in Sunday's NRLW grand final.

2. Julia Robinson (Broncos)

A solid return to the paddock for the Broncos winger after missing the past month with a fractured cheekbone. Robinson got over the line in the 10th minute before producing 138 metres and a try assist in a beaten side.

3. Isabelle Kelly (Roosters)

A powerhouse performance from the NSW and Australian centre, backing up her strong efforts last week. Kelly finished the match with a try, 142 metres, two line breaks, three offloads, 10 tackle busts and 17 tackles in the win.

4. Jess Sergis (Roosters)

If Kelly was one of the best on the field, her centre partner Jess Sergis wasn't too far behind, particularly in defence where she came up with a couple of huge defensive plays and carries late in the game. 

5. Leianne Tufuga (Roosters)

Started off shakily but was among the side's best players on the edge with the ball in hand. Finished the game with a try and 117 metres in a strong performance for the winger.

6. Zahara Temara (Roosters)

Produced a massive second half, particularly with her kicking game, to help guide the Roosters home. Brought her running game out when it mattered and finished with 253 kick metres and three conversions for the match.

7. Raecene McGregor (Roosters)

A brilliant performance from the former Bronco against her old side, linking well with Temara in the halves and producing 96 metres from her 14 carries.

8. Millie Boyle (Broncos)

Another big performance in the middle from the Broncos powerhouse, churning out 177 metres to go with a try, four tackle busts and 35 tackles.

9. Keeley Davis (Dragons)

A vice captain's knock by the Dragons hooker, who crossed for her first try in the NRLW, had 11 carries and set up Emma Tonegato's four pointer in the first half with a deft kick close to the line.

10. Steph Hancock (Titans)

An inspiring effort from the Titans veteran who finished the match with two tries to take her tally to four for the season.

11. Keilee Joseph (Roosters)

Got the Tricolours on the front foot after a slow start and stormed home with a game-tying try late before 101 metres, 31 tackles, five tackle busts and one offload.

12. Amber Hall (Broncos)

Another huge performance from the Kiwi international to finish her 2021 campaign. Scored the opening try of the match before churning out 158 metres with five tackle busts.

13. Jocelyn Kelleher (Roosters)

Came off the bench and added the impact for the Tricolours, crossing for the match-winner and coming up with 21 tackles and three tackle busts.
