For a long time, Jess Cox has been considered one of the more consistent WAFLW players and though she missed half of the 2023 season with an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury she is still recovering from, her long-term form is undeniable.. With a potent, penetrating boot, good football smarts and a knack for winning the contested ball, Cox has played more outside in 2023, even off half-forward as she adds more strings to her bow.

Versatility, as well as her athleticism are ares that have potentially held her back from getting on an AFLW list in the past, but the Swan Districts captain has worked diligently to improve her deficiencies. What she does offer is an array of inside traits that allow her to win a stack o the contested ball, both in space and at the coalface, with quick and clean hands out of the pack, and putting her body on the line time and time again.

Her defensive pressure is strong, and her natural leadership - as captain of Swan Districts - stands out on the field in the way she goes about it. Having come through the West Australian state program, Cox has always been highly rated internally of any club she has played for, but has those weapons to go to the next level if given the chance.
