Mother of Sydney Roosters player Jessica Sergis to contest AVO application


Sydney Roosters NRLW player Jessica Sergis’ mother, Jenny Sergis, will contest an Apprehended Violence Order (AVO) application made by police to protect the rugby player, according to The Daily Telegraph.

Jessica plays for the Sydney Roosters in the National Rugby League. She won Dally M Player of the Year back in 2019 and is now one of the leading faces of women’s rugby league.

According to The Daily Telegraph, police officers applied for a court order to protect the NRLW player from her mother Jenny.

Jenny did not appear at Waverley Local Court in Sydney on Thursday where the police mentioned the application for AVO. Her lawyer, Nick Kelly of McGirr & Associates, informed the courts that Jenny was undertaking a “12-week residential program.”

Mr Kelly told the court Jenny would not be agreeing to the AVO application. The police are to serve a brief by March 16 with a response from Jenny’s lawyers by April 6.

In the interim, a provisional AVO was made to protect Jessica. Criminal charges have not been laid.
