Biography

Dazzling performance after dazzling performance for the Kangaroos has helped earn Slater a reputation as one of the world’s most dangerous players from broken play.

Countless young full-backs have been compared to him but none so far have been able to replicate his speed of the mark, elusive running style nor his uncanny ability to kick and regather in open play.

The Melbourne Storm star was crowned Australia’s greatest athlete in 2009 and 2010, and has added motivation ahead of RLWC2013, after his mistake in the Rugby League World Cup Final against New Zealand cost his side four points at a crucial stage.

With countless individual and team accolades to his name, it’d be unfair to suggest that Slater has a point to prove, but there are one or two pieces of unfinished business for him to attend to.
