The Sydney Roosters are delighted to announce that Brydie Parker and Mia Wood will be continuing their tenure with the Club.
Muswellbrook product Brydie Parker has signed a two-year extension (2024-2025). The 24-year-old winger has been an integral member of the Roosters NRLW team since the competition's inception in 2018.
After sustaining an ACL injury in the delayed 2021 NRLW Grand Final, Parker made a successful return to the field in the opening round of the 2023 season. She combines her NRLW commitments with study for a Bachelor of Physiotherapy and was the Club’s nominee for the NRL’s 2023 Victoria White Medal for her on-going commitment to making a positive impact in various community programs and initiatives.
After making her NRLW debut in 2023, Wood has signed a one-year extension (2024). The 24-year-old made five appearances in her maiden season, none more-so memorable than her debut in which she scored a hat-trick of tries. She was named the Club’s 2023 NRLW Rookie of the Year and away from football, she is a qualified exercise physiologist.
“Brydie has been a Rooster since day one so it’s great to know that she’ll continue to be part of our squad for the next two years,” said the Club’s NRLW Head Coach, John Strange.
“Mia has crafted her skills playing both Rugby 7s and rugby league for a number of years and it was terrific to see her development throughout her first season with the Club. I’m looking forward to that progression continuing this year,” he added.
