St Helens and England winger Tommy Makinson has claimed this year's Golden Boot award.

Makinson was recognised by the Rugby League International Federation (RLIF) for his phenomenal season, scoring 11 tries for a Saints outfit that won League Leaders' Shield.

Additionally, the 27-year old scored a try on his international debut against New Zealand in June and added a hat-trick against them on Saturday, also being named in the Super League's Dream Team last season.

Makinson beat out James Tedesco, Dallin Watene-Zelezniak and Elliott Whitehead who were also shortlisted for the award.

Australia's Isabelle Kelly won the inaugural women's Golden Boot, ousting Ali Brigginshaw , Brittany Breayley, Georgia Roche and Honey Hireme.
