With slick skills and a rock solid defensive technique, Blayke Brailey is one to watch in 2018. Learn a little more about him in our next instalment of the Young Guns series
Comparisons with older brother Jayden are inevitable, however Blayke Brailey is making his own way in rugby league, with the young hooker a player of considerable promise.
An Australian Schoolboy rep and a member of the Sharks NYC side over the last two seasons, Brailey has pushed up to train alongside his brother this summer as a part of the fulltime NRL training group.
While at this stage of his development a little smaller than his older sibling, at just 19-years of age Brailey has the skills and an impeccable tackling technique to help him take that next step in the years ahead.
A local junior and former clubmate of young Sharks halfback Kyle Flanagan, Brailey has been a winner throughout, his Aquinas Colts side untouchable in the Sutherland Shire competition, with that success transferring through to the junior rep and higher levels.
Quietly spoken, a player to let his actions on the field do most of his talking, Sharks TV managed to get a few words out of the youngest Brailey, with his interview now playing.
