Trey Mooney is primed for a massive future in Rugby League and if his 2019 campaign is any indication of his talent – the sky is well and truly the limit.
Mooney emerged as an exciting prospect in 2017 playing four games for the Parramatta Eels in the UNE Harold Matthews Competition before making his mark with an incredible individual season last year.
In his 12 appearances for the Eels he amassed 1583m, 280 tackles and 42 tackle-breaks and was deservedly crowned the NSW Under 16’s Player of the Year.
He’s been a core part of the NSWRL Pathways Program across the past two years, representing the CABE NSW Under 16’s and 18’s sides respectively.
CABE NSW Under 18’s coach Michael Ennis spoke highly of Mooney’s leadership qualities and limitless potential in the lead-up to their clash against Queensland earlier this year.
“He’s another one of the boys who are in this side but are a year young but he's been so dominant at (UNE) SG Ball level,” he said.
“He's a real leader and can play in the middle or the edge off the bench. A great athlete whose powerful.”.
He later earned an Australian Schoolboys jumper and ut in a customary tireless effort with 109m and 17 tackles in just 48 minutes.
He is set for a bigger and better 2020 campaign and will undoubtedly make a name for himself amongst the NRL in the near-future.
