Backrower Alice Tonumaivao has taken the top gong at the inaugural Rebels women's team awards.

Tonumaivao was one of the Rebels' most consistent players in the first Super W, one that was a development opportunity for the winless side.

Samoan born, Tonumaivao has played rugby for five years, playing club rugby for Wests in Melbourne.

The 28-year-old also took home the Best Forward, while flyhalf Georgia Cormick won Best Back and Casey Homewood was named Rookie of the Year.

Phoebe Linder-Patton received a silver lining to a season cut short by injury, voted the Teammate of the Year by the players.
