Biography:

Melbourne Storm’s Player of the Year for 2023, Xavier Coates has proved to be a serious force since moving to the club after making his NRL debut with the Brisbane Broncos.

Finishing 2022 as the Club’s top try scorer of the year with 16 tries, Coates signed a contract extension with Melbourne in April keeping the flyer in purple until at least 2026.

In 2023, the Currumbin Eagles junior showed that age certainly isn’t a barrier at the top level, running in 16 tries, including three hattricks as well as running for 2,684 metres and amassing 59 tackle breaks.

With a further 11 line-breaks, the 22-year old proved he’s a hard man to catch in open space.

Coates also gained selection in the Queensland Maroons side for State of Origin Games 2 and 3 of the series as well as celebrating 50 NRL games in Round 1 of the 2023 season.

An ankle injury suffered in Storm’s Qualifying Final against the Brisbane Broncos would ultimately rule Coates out for the remainder of the 2023 finals series.

Xavier is sponsored by DMS Carpets, EKV Systems-Security Installations and the Toleman Family.
