Parramatta star Dylan Brown has revealed how the brilliance of a Titans young gun sparked his own NRL career – after being spotted by Eels officials at just 15 years old.

Brown said he took up a number of sports to fill his time while waiting for his brother to train in Auckland, one of which was rugby league.

With a background in rugby union, Brown clearly took to the rival code like a duck to water and soon chose to play representative rugby league at 15, after only two years of taking up the sport.

“I was very lucky in my first tournament down south in Rotorua, I was taken by the Parramatta Eels,” Brown said.

“You’re seeing the game from 13 to 15, that’s pretty quick,” Jake Duke said.

Now, seven years on, Brown is one of the best five-eighths in the game and one of Parramatta’s best in 2022.

Brown has recorded 14 tries and 12 line breaks this season – but none of it would have been possible without the man now plying his trade for the Gold Coast Titans.

“I was lucky there was absolute chaos in our team, Paul Turner, who is now at the Gold Coast Titans,” Brown said.

“He was there and he paid a lot of attention to our team, so he was there and I always loved playing with him.”

“Because the turtles came to see him first, didn’t they?” Duke asked.

“Yes, they did, they came to watch Paulie (Turner) and a few other guns at the tournament, because you know, New Zealand has always produced a lot of good players,” Brown said.

“I was able to play a half-decent game and they came and got me, so I’m always grateful.”

Since then, Brown has played 73 games for the Eels since making his debut with the Panthers in 2019.
