Brown was playing for the East Tigers in the QRL's SEQ Senior Women's Division 1 against Souths Logan when two minutes from fulltime she was stretched from the field with a jaw injury. 

The 29-year-old had surgery on Monday to repair her jaw which was broken in two places. 

Last month, she had signed for the Sydney Roosters ahead of the inaugural NRL Women's Premiership set to kick-off in September but despite the injury, she is positive she will be out on the field for the tri-colours.

"My season is still in my hands at this point and I have my sights set on the WNRL premiership and playing for the mighty Sydney Roosters in September. It will be a tight run to the finish line but rest assured I am going to make it," she wrote on Instagram.

Although Brown, who has previously had two serious injuries, was slightly confident she would be back on the pitch sooner. 

The NRL Women's Premiership teams are set to confirm their signings by the end of the month with pre-season training set to begin next month.
