With a renewed confidence and on the back of two tries against Newcastle, Sea Eagles centre Brayden Wiliame has put the hard times of his early career behind him.

Wiliame had the unfortunate record of playing in 13 straight losses prior to his first NRL win against Newcastle on Anzac Day this year.

And through no fault of his own, he became a target for ‘keyboard warriors’ on social media.

“It was tough, I am not going to lie. It was tough on myself,’’ Wiliame said today.

“I’ve got a good support base at home with my family and my partner. They make it a lot easier to get through the hard times.”
