My Profile: Billy Slater


Nickname: Billy the Kid,
Born: 18 June 1983
Birthplace: Nambour, Queensland
Height: 178 cm (5 ft 10 in)
Weight: 87 kg (13 st 10 lb)
Position: Fullback
Biography: Slater started playing rugby league for Innisfail Brothers as a four-year-old. He worked with the Waterhouse racing stable in Sydney for six months after school before becoming homesick. He then took a chance on league, driving 20 hours from north Queensland to Brisbane for a trial with Brisbane Norths,  and was quickly offered a contract. After two standout seasons in the Queensland Cup, Slater was rushed into the Storm's full time squad, and has continually taken his game to new levels year after year. After representing Queensland in 2004 and 2005, Slater returned to State of Origin this year, as well as dominating at international level for Australia. A stunning 2008 saw Slater star for Melbourne - he was named Storm player of the year - Queensland and Australia, with his reward the Golden Boot for the world's best player. He also made up for narrowly missing out on the Dally M medal by being named the Rugby League Federation's player of the year
A freakish try-scorer, Slater, despite how impossible it may seem, will again be looking to take his game to another level in 2009. One of the club's hardest trainers, Slater is also one of the game's most exciting players, with opposition defences often left wondering how he managed to elude them. Slater has also worked extremely hard in several areas of his game of the past couple of seasons, adding a kicking and passing game. The dazzling fullback can also be found at hooker during stages of games in order to give his skipper, Cameron Smith, a breather.

Kia ora Billy, my name is Zane and I live in Werribee, Melbourne. I moved here from New Zealand Two years ago. I was a keen Warriors fan but now that I live here I have adopted a new team THE MELBOURNE STORM. I play locally for the Werribee Bears. We are a new team in this years competition and weve played three preseason games so far and all of them we have lost. However its still early we just need to train harder and smarter. I am a avivd fan of yours I like the professionallism that you display on NRL on FOX especially when the questions they were giving you were hard however though you recovered well. Well Billy I hope you and the rest of the team regroup from mondays game and give the warriors something to think about this weekend. I thought I'll add that Sam Rapira from the Warriors, I,ve played with him back in New Zealand, the year after we won the grand final there, it was for a team called HUKANUI and I played along side his dad and his brother Steve Rapira who now plays for the North Queensland Cowboys. Besides all that I wish you the best for this weekend GO THE STORM!

Hi Billy the kid, you are my favourite player. I've got all the storm stuff. I've got pics of you on my wall just so you know i'm your biggest fan 4 ever even when you've retired in a really long time. Can you give me some advice about football cos i'm the best forward in my local footy team and i've only scored one try all by myself in an 80m run.
From your best fan Alexander Swan. STORM IS THE BEST!!!
