Tom Wright

21st Jul 1997 1.86m/97kg Inside Centre

Wright, who was born in Randwick, New South Wales, was a schoolboy rugby prodigy and was one of the most sought-after prospects in either rugby code following his performances for his school team, St. Joseph’s College.

Possessing electric pace, an incredible step and an eye for the try-line, Wright has all the attributes required to be a success in the fifteen-a-side game.

Tipped as a bolter for the Aussie Sevens Rio Olympic team in 2016, Wright turned down the offer of a Sevens contract to take up a position at the Sea Eagles and was an instant success making a first-grade debut in the 2017/18 season against the Brisbane Broncos, and scoring one try in his five appearances.

In September 2018, Wright signed a two-year deal with the Brumbies in Super Rugby from National Rugby League Club, Manly Warringah Sea Eagles.
