Cocksedge has been named alongside France captain Gaëlle Mignot and Ireland lock Sophie Spence, after producing several kicking masterclasses in the inaugural Super Series, in which New Zealand were victorious.

Canadian Magali Harvey picked up the gong last year, while All Blacks lock Brodie Retallick won the men's version.

The awards will take place in London the day after the World Cup final.
