AFL Women's career

In 2017, Tomkins was drafted in the ninety-sixth overall pick by Greater Western Sydney in the 2016 AFL Women's draft, the team's twelfth pick. Tomkins had played just 17 games for her local club, Penrith Ramettes, prior to being drafted by the GWS Giants. She debuted in round 1 at center half back against Adelaide.

At the end of the 2017 AFL Women's season, Tomkins was nominated by her teammates for the AFL Players' Most Valuable Player Award and was listed in the All-Australian squad. In her inaugural season of AFLW with the Giants, Tomkins played in all seven matches and ran second in the club's best and fairest Gabrielle Trainor medal with 177 votes, just two behind winner, Victorian priority pick Jessica Dal Pos.

Greater Western Sydney signed Tomkins for the 2018 season during the trade period in May 2017.
