Season in Review: Will Warbrick

It was a whirlwind rookie season for Will Warbrick, arriving on the NRL scene in remarkable fashion, scoring 17 tries and being nominated for NRL Dally M Rookie of the Year. 

After a Round 1 debut, the former Rugby 7’s silver medal winner nabbed his first try for 2023 in Round 4 against the Wests Tigers at AAMI Park before scoring a remarkable four tries when Storm next faced the Tigers in Round 16. 

Named Melbourne Storm’s Rookie and Back of the Year, he topped Storm’s tryscoring charts, edging out Xavier Coates tally of 16 thanks to his clutch last-gasp four-pointer to win the game for Storm in the Semi Final against the Sydney Roosters.  

Quickly making a name for himself thanks to his freakish athletic ability, Warbrick racked up 67 tackle breaks and 20 linebreaks, also finishing equal second for the most interceptions of anyone in the NRL (4). 

The 25-year old showed he wasn’t just about doing the flashy things however, running for the second most run metres in the club (3,297 metres), while also equalling the most post-contact metres gained for Storm in 2023. 

His remarkable season was capped off with selection in the New Zealand A squad that took on Tonga A at Eden Park on October 21.
