Club Rugby experiences driving Fraser McReight towards Junior World Cup and beyond

Junior Wallabies captain Fraser McReight believes his experiences at Brisbane Premier Rugby club Brothers has helped fastback his journey to a Super Rugby debut and a second straight Junior World Cup.  McReight was the pick of the Australians and one of the form players at last year’s annual tournament, but said it was time spent a year earlier in an experienced Brothers outfit that built the foundations for his later success.  “Academies are great and they do help you develop because you’re training with guys at a similar level to you but you don’t get a lot of game time,” McReight told Rugby News.  “That’s where I was lucky to be able to go back to club and play in a really good colts side in 2017 at Brothers and then eventually make my Premier grade debut.  “Brothers had won the comp the year before, so being able to come into a side like that with so many great leaders, it was fantastic plus it was just good to just play footy week in, week out.
