Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles have added to their NSW Cup playing depth with the signing of talented half-back Brandon Wakeham for the 2024 season.

The 24-year-old half-back brings a wealth of experience to the Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles team, who open their campaign against South Sydney on Saturday, March 9, at 4 Pines Park under new Coach Wayne Lambkin.

Blacktown Workers General Manager of Football Todd Darvall said the Club was delighted to sign Wakeham.

“When the opportunity came up to sign a quality half like Brandon, we didn’t hesitate to grab him,’’ Darvall said.

“Brandon has played 40 NRL games through stints at Canterbury and the Wests Tigers. He has also represented Fiji in 10 Test matches.

“He will be a key asset in leading our Blacktown team around the field this season. His knowledge and leadership qualities will be invaluable.”
