Brydens Lawyers Academy

Wests Tigers Brydens Lawyers Academy is the Club's primary junior development squad, and has been in existence for the past decade to grow and nurture outstanding junior talent across Inner and South West Sydney.

The Brydens Lawyers Academy is a program aimed at developing players from junior representative sides within the Club’s geographical footprint. It has been a highly successful pathway in the past with players such as David Nofoaluma, Luke Brooks and Esan Marsters all coming through the academy system.

The program runs for around four months following the end of the junior representative season, with the Academy side playing a number of games against other junior representative academy teams in Australia.
